Flu season begins unusually with influenza B at its helm.


The season of Flu has decided to arrive a little earlier than expected in the 2019-2020 season.

The authorities and departments have said that the hospitalizations due to flu had begun in the month of October whereas typically they begin in the month of December.

The signs of sneezing, fever, coughing and also chills have all been pointing one way and that is towards flu. In the month of November the authorities had seen a different kind of flu to what they were usually expecting to see at the time of the year.

Influenza B had been seen in about two-thirds of the patients in the year as per Mark Springer who belongs to the Health District of Spokane.

The Influenza A usually occurs in the beginning of the season of flu an reaches its peak close to the months of December and January.

There are two types of the Influenza that are given through the vaccine, one of them helps the very old or very young and the other one helps the working population that is younger.
