The spike started during the holiday period.

This flu season is shaping up to be one of the worst in decades, according to the United States' top infectious disease doctor Dr. Anthony Fauci.

In West Virginia, the number of reported cases of influenza-like illnesses for the 2019-2020 flu season, so far, was up above last year's rate for the same time of year. "It is a quick and easy process to help protect not only yourself, but anyone you may come into contact with this flu season". You'll see a large mountain peak and then there will be a little trough and then we'll see another peak around February.

Updated flu numbers from the CDC were scheduled to be released on Friday.

"The most effective way to prevent the spread of influenza is to get vaccinated, and it's not too late to get a flu shot".

A child was among those who died, the N.C. Department of Health and Human Services said Thursday.

A North Carolina child has died of the flu, marking the state's first child flu death of the season, according to the North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services.

The flu or influenza virus mutates every year which is why there is a new flu vaccine to get each year.

"If you get the flu vaccine it's more likely that your flu symptoms are going to be much less and the course of the illness will be much less", said Dr. Vito DiCamillo, urgent care medical director at Lancaster General Urgent Care. A total of 44 cases of Influenza A were reported, along with 23 cases of Influenza B. Twenty-three people were hospitalized.

"The only thing predictable about flu is that it's unpredictable".

So far this flu season, there have been 372 laboratory-confirmed cases of influenza cases in the region, from September 1 to December 28, according to Peel Public Health.
