645K people may die each year from flu, new estimate shows

December 13, 2017

Researchers now estimate that between approximately 291,000 and 646,000 people die worldwide each year from seasonal influenza.

The new estimate is based on data from a large and diverse group of countries that were analyzed by researchers from the CDC, WHO and other global health partners. It is higher than a previous estimate of between 250,000 and 500,000 deaths that the researchers said was based on outdated information.
