CDC Predicts Mild Flu Season

COVID precautions may keep infections low.

A new report from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) predicts that the coming flu season may be mild. It credits measures taken to stop the spread of COVID-19.

In the report, researchers note that flu activity in the U.S. right now is at “historical lows” and that data from the Southern Hemisphere—which has just gone through its winter—showed “virtually no influenza circulation.”

However, nothing is certain when it comes to flu season, especially during the middle of a pandemic. So the report says it is still important to prepare for both flu and COVID-19 this fall and winter and to get a flu shot.

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • That people who are in the most susceptible groups would be protected and spared from either the flu or the coronavirus.
  • With thanksgiving that the report predicts a lower than normal flu season this year.
  • For families and businesses continuing to struggle as a result of the coronavirus shutdowns and work closures.
