The educational segment will look into efforts that healthcare professionals suggest and individuals can implement in order to stay healthy.

MIAMI, Feb. 13, 2020 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Laurence Fishburne, the talented Academy Award-nominated actor, and one of the stars of the "John Wick" franchise and television programs like "Blackish", will introduce a new educational episode of the series "Behind The Scenes". In this episode, medical professionals will discuss the spread of contagious viruses, including the Flu, and how individuals and organizations can be vigilant in helping combat infection. The segment is designed to be informative and enlightening for viewing audiences.

Each year, at the outset of flu season, the public is flooded with information regarding safety precautions and necessary steps to prevent illness... and for good reason. Recently, the flu has been responsible or partially responsible for over ten thousand deaths every year. In the 2019-2020 flu season, the CDC estimated that between twenty three and thirty one million cases of the flu would be transmitted, meaning an extremely active timeframe for the virus and the possibility of even more loss of life than recent years.

As many are aware, receiving a flu vaccine every year is one of the most effective methods of preventing transmission of the virus. Not only does a flu shot help individuals protect their own health, but it also reduces stress on the healthcare and hospital systems, which often absorb hundreds of thousands of medical visits that are flu-related. Additionally, individuals and families can use additional preventative measures, such as sanitizing their hands as well as their homes, offices, and locations of frequent visitation.

These are also helpful to prevent the transmission of other viruses, germs, and diseases that can be hazardous to consumer health. As concern over the recent coronavirus outbreak in the Wuhan region of China continues to escalate, and with the death toll now over one thousand, many are effectively changing their habits and taking further precautions to keep themselves and their families healthy.

This segment of the program will feature leaders in the field of infectious disease and virus protection who will discuss why these steps are so critical, and the future outlook of disease prevention and safety.

"Behind The Scenes" is hosted by Laurence Fishburne, and is anchored by a veteran development and production team that have won numerous awards for their achievements in educational television. The content produced by the program is quality checked prior to dissemination to a national television audience.
