"These findings remind us of the seriousness of flu and that flu prevention should really be a global priority", Joe Bresee, associate director for global health in the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's (CDC) Influenza Division and a study co-author, said in a statement. 25, there were already 1,545 reported cases of the flu throughout the state, compared with 379 at that date in 2016, according to the DHSS. Consequently, the majority of flu cases reported in the U.S. so far this season have been that H3N2 strain.
