Abstract [en]

Conclusions

Our results demonstrated a significant increase in the burden of disease during the peak influenza season with increased direct medical costs, especially in primary care. The largest impact of ILI was identified among the youngest children (2-4 years). Increased absence from work due to parents' care of ill children correlates strongly with the ILI encounters in health care. This loss of productivity represents a large indirect cost for society.
