Cold & Flu Stats
I live in a part of the country where I enjoy four distinct seasons - sometimes all in one week (60 degrees yesterday; snow predicted for tomorrow). But one time of year most of us dread is the cold & flu season.
For those infection preventionists among us, the season is more similar to a sports season. You read the preview reports, try to anticipate the players involved, and once the season is in full swing you follow the stats closely.
So it's for you - the flu stat geeks among us - that I share this infograhic full of 2013 cold/flu stats. It was created by STS Health, a consumer health and bio-tech company that makes FluNada®, a cold and flu-like symptom relief product.
Let's hope this one is a short season.
