Bad Flu Season Ahead?

By ABC7, Washington DC, September 25, 2017
The flu season is right around the corner and things are expected to get even busier for Dr. Ian Seemungal and staff at Virginia Hospital Center. “We do get stories of patients coming in feeling very ill,” the Infectious Disease Specialist said. “Sometimes they have to be admitted to the hospital, and sometimes they have mild influenza and they can be treated in the office.” The problem is, the U.S. may be in for a bad season.
