Malaysia (AP) — New Malaysian Prime Minister Anwar Ibrahim said Friday he will also serve as finance minister as he unveiled a leaner Cabinet with many new faces in his unity government.

That's as high as the peak of the 2017-18 flu season and higher than any season since. The annual winter flu season usually doesn’t get going until December or January, but this one began early and has been complicated by the simultaneous spread of other viruses. The measure of traffic in doctor's offices is based on reports of sym
