This flu season has been especially bad. As of epidemiological week 4 (week ending on January 27th), overall hospitalizations are now the highest we've seen in recent years and flu associated deaths in children and adults continue to be reported. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), latest tracking data indicate that the flu activity is still high and widespread across most of the nation and increasing overall. Influenza A H3N2 continues to dominate this season, but H1N1 and influenza B are also causing illness.
