Flu Now Epidemic in U.S., With 15 Child Deaths Reported

By Steven Reinberg HealthDay Reporter

TUESDAY, Dec. 30, 2014 (HealthDay News) — The flu has reached epidemic levels in the United States, with 15 children dead so far this season, the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reported Tuesday.

Every state will likely have flu cases within the next few weeks, and more deaths are expected, said Dr. Michael Jhung, a medical officer in CDC’s influenza division.

“We are in the middle of flu season,” Jhung said. “It’s a safe bet that we are going to see flu activity continue to increase for a few more weeks. We are going to see every state in the country affected by flu.”
