No flu case has been reported in Quebec since the start of the new year. An exceptional finding, which is however quite normal.
In an article in the Journal de Montréal, we learn that no case of influenza has been reported in the health sector. At the same date last year, the National Institute of Public Health of Quebec had counted nearly 2,000 cases in hospital laboratories.
Efforts to fight COVID-19, such as masking, hand washing and physical distancing, keep the influenza virus at bay, which is less contagious.
