Canada : Cases of flu virus in Ontario and Toronto at five-year low

Via Healthzone, excerpt :

" After riding the wave of the 2009 H1N1 pandemic, Ontario residents appear to have avoided the seasonal onslaught of coughing and sneezing — so far.

The number of laboratory-confirmed cases of the flu by the end of January was the lowest it’s been in the past five years, according to data from the Ontario Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care.

In Toronto there were only 64 confirmed cases of influenza since September. Sixteen were part of an institutional outbreak in the last week of January. At the same point last year, Toronto had already seen 1,106 confirmed cases of the flu."
