An infectious diseases physician in Toronto is reporting an increase in the number of older patients he is seeing with seasonal influenza.

Dr. Isaac Bogoch at Toronto General Hospital noted this year’s flu season started early and escalated quickly.

According to the Public Health Agency of Canada, children under five are still making up the largest age bracket of flu patients in hospital. However, rates among seniors (aged 65 and up) are on the rise.
