2020 on track to be worst US flu season in decades

As flu reaches high levels throughout the country, the virus sets a tragic record for children.

Story at a glance

The CDC estimates at least 27 children have died from the flu, breaking a record for this point in the season for child flu deaths since the CDC began keeping records 17 years ago.

At least 2,900 people have died from the flu this season.

Health experts say this season could be just as deadly as 2017-2018, when 61,000 flu-related deaths were recorded.

The U.S. is barrelling toward another devastating flu season, as the number of flu cases is on track to be just as severe as the 2017-2018 season, which was one of the deadliest in more than four decades.

So far, at least 2,900 people in the U.S. are estimated to have died from the flu this season, according to data released by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) last week. That’s 800 more deaths than estimated just a week prior. The CDC estimates in the 2017-2018 season more than 61,000 people died from flu-related deaths.

Since October, flu cases and hospitalizations have spiked. The CDC estimates there have been at least 6.4 million flu illnesses and 55,000 hospitalizations. This season has been especially devastating for children, with 27 reported deaths through Dec. 28. That’s the highest number of child flu deaths at this point in the season since the CDC began keeping records 17 years ago.

A reason the flu has been so hard on children is that influenza B is this season’s dominant strain. Children are more susceptible to the strain, which is more stable compared with influenza A.

Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, told CNN that while it’s impossible to predict just how bad the flu will play out, “the initial indicators indicate this is not going to be a good season — this is going to be a bad season.”

“Hopefully this turns around and comes down, but if it continues on the trajectory it’s on, it’s not going to be good,” Fauci said.

Health experts recommend people get a flu shot if they haven’t done so already, as the worst may still be yet to come.

上文内容摘要:“美国疾病控制中心CDC估计,至少已有27名儿童死于流感,打破了CDC自17年前开始记录儿童流感死亡人数以来的最高纪录。这个季节至少已有2900人死于流感。卫生专家表示,这一季节的致死率可能与2017-2018年一样高,当时记录了6.1万例与流感相关的死亡病例。”

2020 on track to be worst US flu season in decades

然而美国社会的紧张程度没中国那么强烈。不过,中国国内人员密集,跟美国情况有别。中国文化是大家庭式,出了问题找家长。美国是独行侠式,出了问题赖自己更多些。两国千差万别,很多方面无法类比。

日本方面,有朋友说:“同是亚洲人的日本人似乎不太抗感冒,感冒好像是个病。有其它病都不怎么请假的人感冒时马上戴口罩、请病假(不是怕自己死,是怕传给周围的人)。年老体弱的一感冒就肺炎,然后就没有然后了。日本一年四季都有很多人戴口罩,一个是花粉季节,还有就是感冒,患感冒的和防感冒的。在日本,感冒了还坚持工作的除非是不得已,要不不会被表扬,会遭白眼,感冒不带口罩数没公德。”
