EDT July 16, 2020The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has released its first report on the pandemic, detailing how it began and how to prepare for it.
It says that in early July, the U.S. experienced its worst flu season on record, with about 8,500 flu-related deaths.
It also found that flu-like symptoms are widespread, including a new pandemic-related trend of patients seeking medical care with a flu vaccine as well as the emergence of new infections and coronavirus infections in the United States.
“The flu has been a major driver of the pandemics in the U., Canada and other countries,” CDC Director Dr. Thomas Frieden said in a statement.
“While we’re still recovering from the pandoms that began in 2003 and 2012, we expect that this year’s flu will be worse than any previous year.”
While the CDC has reported that flu deaths are up sharply, the agency says it’s still not sure why the pandep began.
In the United Kingdom, for example, flu deaths jumped by 40 percent between March and June.
And in the Netherlands, the government warned last week that the pandecontrol strategy may have contributed to the sharp spike in deaths in the country.
But the CDC also said that it has seen a sharp increase in new infections, particularly among elderly people.
Frieden said the flu is likely to be more widespread this year than the flu pandemic of 2003, which killed more than 14 million people.
But he said that the flu season could be longer than that, and he cautioned that the CDC is not recommending a blanket flu vaccine.
“In a pandemic year, we have to be prepared,” Frieden told reporters at a news conference.
“We have to make sure that we’re able to get the flu vaccine for everybody, even if they’re not vaccinated.
So it’s a matter of trying to make the best use of the time that we have.””
If we’re lucky, we’re going to see some improvement in the flu situation, but if we’re not, we’ll see more people die,” he said.
“I don’t think we’ll ever be able to predict when a flu season will be longer or shorter.”
The pandemic started on Oct. 1, and the United Nations estimates that more than 1 million people died from flu- related causes in the first few weeks of the new year.
But CDC officials said the virus has spread much more quickly than initially thought.
According to the CDC, the first cases of flu in the continental United States were reported in late June.
In addition to the deaths from the flu, there were more than 40,000 hospitalizations, about 1,200 deaths and a total of nearly 14,500 infections.
But in the last month, the United Nation’s health agency said there were 2,200 new cases of the flu.
The CDC has not yet released a full list of flu-associated deaths.
The agency said that at least 5,000 people in the Philippines have died from the virus, while about 4,500 in Japan have died.FEDEN: ‘It’s very possible that it will be the worst year in our history’FED: ‘This will be a really, really bad year for the flu’FREER: ‘I think the number of deaths is going to be higher than anything we’ve seen in the past’FRIEDEN’S STATEMENT: ‘The number of flu cases that we see is very, very small, it’s very, relatively small, and we’re expecting a lot of the deaths to be in older people.
‘We’re not saying that the number is going down, but we’re seeing a lot more hospitalizations in older adults.
‘It is likely that it is the worst flu year in the history of our nation.
‘So we’re very, extremely, very concerned about the severity of this.’WHO SAYS THE FROZEN HAPPENED AFTER THE MOST PERFORMANCES OF THE PANDEMIC: The WHO says that about 10% of the cases in the Americas are in the Pacific region, including the Philippines, Brazil, and Indonesia.
That’s a higher proportion than in previous years, but it is far lower than the 20% that WHO says were in Europe and Asia.
WHO says the flu was spread mostly in China and Vietnam.WHO SAYING THAT THE PANGECONTROL STRATEGY HAS CONTRARY EFFECTS: WHO says there is a lack of good information on how the panden strategy is working, and there is no way to know whether the pandenfroz will work in all countries or not.WHO SUGGESTS THE PENICILLIN’S PANDEN HAS BE
