This year’s flu season has been dominated by a particularly nasty bug, and health officials say it has now reached almost every corner of the country. In a press conference on Friday morning, the CDC says flu season appears to be peaking.
“We saw that the season started earlier back in November and has had a really rapid rise and is probably peaking right about now,” said Dr. Dan Jernigan, M.D., Captain of U.S. Public Health Service and Director of the Influenza Division at the National Center for Immunization and Respiratory Diseases. “Flu is everywhere in the United States right now … There’s lots of flu in lots of places.”
