Flu Activity Increasing Across Country

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), flu activity in the United States is on the increase, as noted in the FluView report for the week ending February 5. CDC tracks certain key flu indicators over the season. Most key flu indicators increased this week, including the number of people visiting doctors for influenza-like illness, the number of states reporting widespread influenza activity and the number of influenza-associated pediatric deaths.

Although influenza activity can rise and fall during an influenza season, activity in the United States generally peaks in January or later.
