How Bad is this Year’s Flu Season Going to be?
This winter, health officials are expecting a particularly tough flu season. It is therefore important that your immune system be in tip-top shape and ready to take on any invaders. Give your immune system a boost with del-IMMUNE V.
Flu season is just starting, and experts are saying it will probably be a bad one. According to the Centers of Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) the flu has not yet reached epidemic proportions but could happen soon. Widespread influenza activity was reported by 46 states. The number of deaths that are attributed to pneumonia and influenza was 6.7% for the week ending December 16, 2017. This is only 0.2% below the epidemic threshold of 6.9%
The immune system is on the front lines, thwarting micro-organisms that can cause illness and disease.
An immune booster can be instrumental in helping to keep your immune system working at its best, and its fastest, leading to improved overall health and well-being.
Flu viruses can be found all year round in the United States, but the flu is most common during the winter months. The graph below shows flu activity for the US by month for 1982-2016 flu seasons.
About 80 % of flu cases are of the H3N2 strain, which was the cause of many hospitalizations and deaths in Australia and New Zealand where winter hits in July and August. The British tabloids dubbed the H3N2 strain the “Killer Aussie Flu”. The Sydney Morning Herald stated that, “A total of 745 people with confirmed cases died, compared to the five-year average of 176 deaths, though the true mortality rate is likely to have been higher.”
According to the New England Journal of Medicine, Influenza A (H3N2 viruses dominated and the vaccine effectiveness against influenza A (H3N2) was only 10%.
So what does this mean for you?
- The flu season may hit the US very hard this winter.
- The flu vaccine has only shown to be 10% effective against the most prolific type of flu this season (H3N2).
- The highest flu season months are December – February.
Your Immune System is the strongest weapon you have to avoid illnesses such as colds and the flu!
However, to do its job of protecting your body from foreign invaders that can make you feel sick, the immune system needs to respond quickly to health threats such as viruses and bacteria.
