Flu season most often peaks in February, but the latest projections show there’s better odds that America’s 2019-2020 flu season high points in December than any other month, according to an article on the CleanLink website.
There’s a 40 percent chance that flu activity peaks in the United States in December, compared to a 30 percent chance for January 2020 and 25 percent chance for February, according to the The Centers For Disease Control And Prevention (CDC).
The CDC came to these projections using FluSight, a tool it created in an effort to reduce the flu’s impact by forecasting how it might play out. Unlike FluSight, more traditional CDC surveillance systems track flu activity after it has occurred.
According to FluSight’s latest projections, which can be viewed on the CDC’s website, flu activity in the United States will continue to increase and stay above the baseline level over the next few weeks.See the latest posts on our homepage
