If you’ve been stuck at work for more than 24 hours, don’t fret: The flu has been declared over in California.
As of Monday, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) announced that the pandemic has been officially declared over.
The announcement came after state health officials, which had been warning of an uptick in cases and fatalities since early November, announced a total of only three confirmed cases of the influenza in the state, none of which were linked to the coronavirus.
The state had reported at least 23,838 confirmed cases in the three days following the pandemics peak, including 6,764 deaths.
The CDC said it was not able to provide more specific numbers for how many people were diagnosed and hospitalized, but said that the number of people who have recovered and have recovered full ability to participate in work, school, and other activities will likely surpass the numbers reported during the peak.
The coronavillosis pandemic that began in late October has killed more than 825,000 people in 28 countries, according to the World Health Organization.
It was the first pandemic to affect the United States since 1918, when an influenza pandemic killed more then 100 million people in the United Kingdom and France.
