This Flu Season Was Relatively Mild but Longer Than Usual   

A new CDC MMWR summarizes the 2021-2022 flu season. The timing and severity of the season were different than the previous season. While there was more activity than last season, the 2021-2022 season was still relatively mild. Also, activity lasted later than any flu season on record, with two waves of flu activity. Flu A(H3N2) viruses were predominant during both waves.

Learn about the History of Avian Influenza        
The first description of avian influenza (bird flu) dates back to 1878, when it was described as a contagious disease of poultry associated with high mortality. Since then, avian influenza viruses have caused outbreaks in wild birds, poultry, and more rarely in mammals and people. A new timeline summarizes significant bird flu outbreaks in birds, infections in people, and events from 1880-present.
