Flu cases cover the U.S. and are expected to remain at peak levels as we head into March. While February is typically peak flu activity, there are several unusual aspects to this flu season.
1. We are receiving an equal number of reports of stomach and respiratory flu.
2. Some unfortunate people are experiencing both stomach and respiratory symptoms at the same time.
3. Almost 90% of reported flu cases are associated with one strain – H3N2 – which generally presents more severe illness.
4. All age groups are affected at the same rate.
We encourage everyone to remain diligent with their wellness regimens during this time of peak flu activity. If experiencing flu symptoms immediately take Triple Flu Defense 2016-2017 three times per day until symptoms subside.
