Discussion: The flu outbreak — what you need to know

If someone in your family is sick with the flu, you already know this: the flu season this year is bad. Maybe even record-breaking bad, according to the Centers for Disease Control. Last Friday, the CDC said this could be the worst flu outbreak since the 2009 swine flu pandemic. Join The World for a discussion about the flu outbreak during an event at Harvard's T.H. Chan School of Public Health, Tuesday from noon-1 p.m. ET. We'll be live streaming the forum here.
