Flu epidemic 2012 is already over!

Figures from Belgium's doctors show that the flu epidemic is over sooner than in previous years. Fewer than 138 people per 100,000 head of population are now ill.

Dr Viviane Van Casteren: "The flu epidemic was relatively short: six weeks while we usually expect it to last between eight and ten weeks. This year it was above all children under 5 years of age that were affected. Among the over-65's we did notice more complications like pneumonia."
