California has so far gotten a break from the flu, and it might be helped by the weather
Los Angeles Times

Two years ago, influenza killed 146 Californians between October and late January. When the flu season ended months later, more than 400 people had died of the infection — an outbreak the state rated “moderately severe.”

After a huge improvement last year — the season’s death toll plummeted to 78 — the situation looks even better now.

There have been just three flu-related deaths in California since October, and experts say the weather could be part of the reason.
