Flu Epidemics Force versus Virus Type in USA
Abstract: We estimate the influenza force according to the virus type in the USA (United States of America) for the season 2010/11 to 2019/20. For these we use the data available from CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention) related to Public Health Laboratory Virologic Age Surveillance and The Burden Estimates presented by CDC yearly.
