Coronavirus Disease 2019 and Influenza 2019-2020

JAMA. 2020;323(12):1122. doi:10.1001/jama.2020.2633

Lost in the discussion about COVID-19 is the fact that the US is experiencing a severe influenza season that has already resulted in more than 16 000 deaths. This JAMA Infographic compares prevalence and number of deaths for the 2 diseases.
