Today I read an article from the New York Times about the 2012-2013 flu season. The article, "Tough Flu Season in U.S., Especially for the Elderly," by McNeil emphasizes the severity of the flu outbreak this year by reporting on the number of sick people and deaths caused by the flu.
The lead starts by quoting Dr. Thomas R. Frieden. He says this flu season is "worse than average and particularly bad for the elderly."
