An estimated 80,000 Americans died of flu and its complications last winter — the disease’s highest death toll in at least four decades.

Flu experts knew it was a very bad season, but at least one found size of the estimate surprising. “That’s huge,” said Dr. William Schaffner, a Vanderbilt University vaccine expert. The tally was nearly twice as much as what health officials previously considered a bad year, he said. Source
