According to sources experts claim that the extremely cold climate seen this year resulted in an increase in the number of swine flu cases. Meanwhile when seeing that the flu season is ending, people do not need to worry. Dr. Shankar from the Institute of Preventive Medicine in Hyderabad said “Flu season starts around August and ends by January to February or so. Though we saw a significant number of cases this year, we don’t expect to see a drastic rise in positive cases at this point and winter is ending and the cases too are expected to go down.”

Meanwhile he acknowledges that getting vaccinated is certainly beneficial, he also states that getting vaccinated at this point is not going to be helpful. Dr. Shankar adds “It is nearing the end of flu season, people should just take the basic precautionary measures like hand-washing and protecting themselves against cold weather. The vaccine is ideally most effective when taken at least 10 to 15 days prior to the start of the flu season”.
