Flu Season To Be More Severe Than Last Year With Holiday Season Looming

Des Moines, Iowa – Many Iowans will be headed to the airport next week for Thanksgiving trips and some forecasts predict this flu season will be more severe than last year. Dr. Deborah Mulligan, Chief Medical Affairs Officer of telehealth provider M-D Live, says the convergence of flu season and holiday travel season increases your chances of getting sick, especially for Iowans who will be spending time on a plane.


While many frequent fliers fear being seated next to sick strangers, Mulligan says air travel is fraught with chances for catching a bug.
