Many have noticed the non-existent flu activity during the COVID-19 pandemic, but research suggest that could change soon. Two new studies predict that the flu will come roaring back this fall and winter. They have predicted that there could be 100,000 to 400,000 more flu hospitalizations in the 2021-2022 flu season compared with a typical season. The findings suggested that the 2021-2022 flu season could see a 20% increase in flu cases compared with a typical season. Young children (younger than age two) would be particularly at risk for flu in the 2021-2022 season because they are unlikely to have any previous exposure to the disease, the authors said.
