The Flu and You

Posted on February 04, 2013
Nothing puts you behind the schedule of your daily life quite like getting sick—missing out on even a day or two of school or work can set you behind much more than you'd think. And when it comes to getting sick, few things can get you down as hard as the flu. The flu comes in a few different shapes and sizes, and none of them are your friend. It's no surprise then that the words "flu season" strike fear into the hearts of many, especially those who are more susceptible to it. Some years aren't as bad, but the winter of 2013 has been hit particularly hard by a strain of the nasty bug, and who could forget the swine flu epidemic from a few years back? For college students living in close quarters, colleagues sharing cubicle space, or even larger families all in the same house, transferring germs back and forth can be unavoidable, and quickly lead to the spread of the flu virus. The following infographic takes a look at just how many people get the flu, as well as how it affects us from year to year. Between medical expenses and the expense of lost time, the flu can have a serious impact on every aspect of your life.
