Public Health Agency of Canada – Flu Watch

Since November 2013, the Public Health Agency of Canada has received a number of reports of flu illness among young and middle-aged adults caused by influenza H1N1 which is the dominating strain circulating this flu season. Although the number of flu cases being reported is not unusual, as in other flu seasons, authorities are reporting severe illness resulting in hospitalization, and some deaths due to H1N1.
