Warning! Flu Season Could Be Nasty!

Infectious diseases experts are warning Canada to be on its guard for a potentially nasty flu season. A mixed bag of viruses making the rounds across the country, coupled with a flu vaccine that might not be all that effective in preventing the illness, is fuelling that speculation. In its weekly FluWatch report, the Public Health Agency of Canada says the annual sneezing-coughing season began early this year –especially with illness due to influenza-B. The percentage of lab-positive tests for flu is also higher at this point on the calendar compared with previous seasons. (The Canadian Press)
