“We are in a phase of intense activity”, according to Yves Van Laethem

There are more and more cases of the flu. Can we speak of an epidemic?

According to Sciensano, we cannot yet speak of an epidemic, the critical threshold has not yet been exceeded, but there is some vagueness in the figures, so we are somewhat in an unknown zone. That said, it is true that there are indeed many cases of influenza. Undeniably, we are in a phase of intense and strengthening influenza activity.

The flu is less dangerous than the Covid?

Yes, it causes much less mortality. However, it remains dangerous for a certain type of more vulnerable public, such as the elderly for example.
