      Flu epidemic: a record excess mortality estimated at more than 11,400 deaths
      ...
      As the end of the epidemic is expected to occur "this week or next week," according to the InVS, the time has come to take and the first interim balance sheets. One thing is certain: the flu hit very hard this year, with nearly 3 million cases. Worse, winter mortality has so far been 19% higher than expected, calculated from the previous eight years.

      InVS announcement "estimated 11,400 excess deaths" since the epidemic began in mid-January 2015. A well above those seen during the winters 2008-2009 and 2012-2013 already particularly deadly. It is even the record since the mid-2000s, when the Institute began making such estimates.

      Another indicator highlighting the seriousness of the epidemic influenza 2015, the number of cases requiring hospitalization in intensive care. A total of 1,411 people have been admitted to the ICU for influenza-like illness since last November and 186 have died. Again, it is a sad record, exceeding the influenza A / H1N1 pandemic in 2009-2010.
