Second wave of the flu strikes hard during Spring
Just when you thought you made it through flu season unharmed, the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) announces the dangers of a second wave of the flu.
Influenza B can be even more severe in young children.
LOS ANGELES, CA (Catholic Online) - Influenza B can be just as bad as Influenza A, the one everyone knows about. Influenza B is less known but should be taken more seriously.
"Influenza A we usually hear more about throughout the year, you know, with seasonal deaths and people dying. It's important to remember that influenza B can be just as severe as influenza A and sometimes it can be more severe in younger children," stated epidemiologist Haley Zachary to KKTV.
"Typically influenza A will start earlier, so we'll see that in October, November, December, typically peaking around December, January."
Both types A and B have similar symptoms and the same ways to protect yourself from the illness. With the Easter holiday coming up, it's important to practice good hygiene for the safety of you and your family.
Wash your hands, cover your coughs, and if you think you could have the flu - stay home.
This year's flu season is expected to finally be over during May.
