The U.S. has been hit pretty hard by the flu so far, and it's pretty early for flu season. It seems like if you haven't had the flu yet, you probably know someone who has had it. According to the DailyMail:

The latest figures from the CDC show 29 states and New York City reporting high levels of flu activity, up from 16 states and New York City just one week prior.

 

Overall, 41 states reported cases.

 

'It’s about five weeks ahead of the average flu season,' said Lyn Finelli, lead of the surveillance and response team that monitors influenza for the CDC’s National Center for Immunization and Respiratory Diseases. 'We haven’t seen such an early season since 2003 to 2004.'

Even people who have gotten the flu shot have gotten sick. Have you had the flu during this flu season? Let us know in today's KFYO Poll of the Day.
