This winter's flu epidemic arrives
The flu epidemic has arrived in Switzerland – but this year’s flu vaccinations should cover the three different viruses currently circulating.
The epidemic is late this year. It’s defined by the Federal Health Office when 69 or more people per 100,000 report symptoms. It’s now running at 95.
Government experts believe this year’s epidemic won’t be as bad as in other years.
The worst hit areas are French speaking cantons and Bern.
