HOW IS PANDEMIC FLU DIFFERENT FROM SEASONAL FLU?

Pandemic flu and seasonal flu are different strains of the influenza virus. Seasonal flu happens around the same time every year and the viruses have previously been identified so people have developed some immunity to it. Pandemic flu can happen at any time throughout the year, and since it is caused by a new virus, few people will have a natural defense to it.
