How much money was lost due to Flu illness last year?

Im debating a Repug and you know everything is about profit, profit, profit to
them.

Im arguing that there is always an economic impact to due to illness. I found this interesting fact.

"Businesses suffer an estimated $20 billion loss in productivity each year from absence due to illness caused by obesity."

http://www.emedicinehealth.com/articles/11506-1.asp

But, I havent found any numbers on Flu and economic loss.

Any help would be appreciated.
