The 2013 Seasonal Influenza Page
Again the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention monitor influenza levels throughout the United States, to produce a map indicating the geographical distribution of laboratory diagnosed influenza activity at any given time. It seems as if a good number of people in BIO230 are ready and waiting for Flu2013, so hopefully we will have few medical absences for the remainder of the term. Early reports are showing somewhat elevated levels in several southern states (Texas, Alabama, and South Carolina, but most other activity is very low to non-existent. Pennsylvania is one of those states where flu does not seem to be reported so far. As always, we will update with weekly reports as the CDC updates the Big Board!
