Rome, December 17 - Italy's public health
institute reported on Monday that this year's flu season which
has already clobbered an estimated 69,000 Italians per week and
struck 349,350 adults and children so far is expected to peak
the week of Christmas.
Health officials have registered 1.7 million cases since
the beginning of the influenza wave starting in October.
The Italian Society of General Medicine (SIMG) estimates
that 4 to 6 million Italians will catch the flu before the
season ends and encourages anyone not vaccinated to do so.
"The objective is to minimize complications like
respiratory illnesses that can be caused by influenza," SMIG
President Claudio Cricelli said.
