Current Flu Season Is Longest On Record
SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – This year’s flu season has been record-breaking.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention are reporting that this flu season is the longest since the government began keeping track — 21 weeks so far. It’s a week longer than the previous high in 1997, and this season has been riskier than normal.
The virus this year has been called “moderately severe” based on rates of illness and hospitalization.
Luckily, the flu season appears to be dying down. Only 11 states are reporting activity within the last week.
