Flu season peaks in USA, still strong in Wyoming

As of March 3, Pennsylvania had recorded 169 flu-related deaths in the 2017-2018 flu season, including five children.

"While we believe that flu season has peaked for us in DE, flu is still widespread and at high levels in our state, and will likely continue to circulate for weeks to come", said DPH Director Dr. Karyl Rattay.

"We have seen the numbers go up and down in the past", Deti said.

The flu season runs through May.

DE has seen nearly 6,700 lab-confirmed cases of the flu during the 2017-2018 flu season. Included in the total are four pediatric deaths.

The flu season peaked nationwide in mid-February, with 7.4 percent of medical visits attributed to the flu, making it the worst flu season in the United States since the 2009 swine flu pandemic, according to the Centers for Disease Control.

He says there's a reason why flu cases are still considered high towards the end of the flu season. "Having said that, the incidents of flu right now even having gone down is still higher than it was at its peak past year".

The Division of Public Health says people can still get their flu shots.

It appears the flu season peaked a couple weeks ago in MI.
