  1. Abbreviations: OR, odds ratio; CI, confidence interval; HR, hazard ratio; BMI, body mass index.
  2. a Laboratory-confirmed influenza infection with viral antigen detected by immunochromatographic assay.
  3. b Clinically defined influenza was diagnosed as fever (temperature, ≥37.8°C) and any 2 of the following clinical symptoms: cough, sore throat, headache, or myalgia.
  4. c OR and P values were estimated using multiple logistic regression.
  5. d HR and P values were estimated using the Cox proportional hazards regression model.
