Figures like 50,000 to 700,000 excess deaths due to influenza are certainly bad.

However to put it into perspective, the UK normally suffers from between 25,000 to 50,000 excess deaths each winter at present.

"Influenza is often implicated in winter mortality as it can lead to bronchitis and pneumonia, especially in the elderly, although relatively few deaths are attributed to influenza itself."
