Cumulative total for the season, as of




With just a few more weeks to go of the official influenza season, many fewer people have been seeking outpatient care for influenza. There were two deaths last week, bringing the total number of deaths from influenza this season to 48. The actual number of deaths caused by the flu and secondary infections is probably much larger. In the last week there were 14 hospitalizations, bringing the season’s total to 1078.

The numbers of flu cases shown here are confirmed positive influenza tests.
