Vienna – At the beginning of the colder months, the nose flows, and cough and hoarseness plague many. However, there is still little flu activity across Europe. This was reported by Medical Director of Vienna Hospital Association (KAV), Michael Binder, to journalists on Monday. But: "We are well prepared for an epidemic," Binder said at the presentation of the actions of an influenza epidemic. Binder does not believe the flu epidemic – "if not extreme" – this year will be reflected in the form of walking beds.
