      On cover: Preparing for the next influenza pandemic. Pandemic influenza can overwhelm a community, causing very serious public health, social, and economic problems. Approximately 36,000 deaths and 220,000 hospitalizations per year are related to seasonal influenza in the U.S. (1). The impact of the next influenza pandemic could be several times greater than seasonal influenza. Researchers estimate that during the next influenza pandemic, 15% ­ 35% of the U.S. population will become clinically ill with the influenza virus (2, 3). Planning ahead in preparation for pandemic influenza, with its potentially very high morbidity and mortality rates, is essential for public health officials and local communities (4A). Influenza illness is associated with work day loss during annual influenza epidemics and during pandemics. However, because illness rates during a pandemic are likely to be 2­5 times higher than a typical influenza season, special planning for workloss during pandemics is critical to maintain continuity of operations in a severe pandemic. Based on census data and certain assumptions in a given area (e.g., a city, a state, a local community), FluWorkLoss estimates the number of days lost from work due to an influenza pandemic; the length and virulence of the pandemic can be changed in this program so that a range of possible impacts can be estimated.
