Impact on Mortality(WB Model): 

Impact on Mortality (WB Model) Assumes a human flu pandemic similar to the 1918 Spanish flu. Globally, 1.08% of the world population dies, with mortality rates varying from 0.3% in the U.S. to more than 2% in some developing countries.

Impact on Illness and Absenteeism(WB Model): 

Impact on Illness and Absenteeism (WB Model) For every person that dies, 3 are seriously ill, requiring hospitalization for a week and absence from work for 2 weeks; 4 require medical treatment and are absent from work for a week; Approx. 27% of the population has a mild bout of flu requiring 2 days’ absence from work; For every sick day, another absentee day is registered either because people stay at home to care for a sick person or to avoid illness.

Impact from Efforts to Avoid Infection(WB Model): 

Impact from Efforts to Avoid Infection (WB Model) Efforts to avoid infection are modeled as a demand shock, reflecting reduced travel, restaurant dining, hotels, tourism, theater visits, shopping, etc. as individuals seek to avoid contact with others.
