However, many hospitals, such as UCLA Medical Center, are treating over 200 patients a day who are suffering from the flu. Wally Ghurabi stated, refering to the 1994 catastrophe that executed handfuls and harmed thousands.

Though the flu killed three Californians by this time a year ago, 68 people had died from it by the end of February, according to state data. The flu season is typically at its worst around February. Paramedics and ambulances are strained because of the number of calls that have been made. She says flu shots are the best way to prevent the flu or make it less serious if you get it.
