Our efforts to prevent the spread of coronavirus may help reduce flu activity in the fall.

That's according to a new report from the CDC.


Scientists say flu cases in the United States dropped sharply within two weeks of the coronavirus emergency declaration in the spring.

The report says the Southern Hemisphere, which is now coming out of the peak of their flu season, has seen very little activity.

Experts say continuing such measures and getting the flu shot might keep our flu activity low.
