Earliest Flu Season In A Decade

Posted by Milton Recht:

From The Washington Times, "Starting in the South, flu season off to a fast and miserable start" by Meredith Somers:
This year’s start to the flu season is the earliest in a decade, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, setting off a wave of doctor visits in mostly Southern states from Louisiana to Virginia that have been hard hit. Although the early onset doesn’t necessarily portend an epidemic, medical professionals say this year’s strain is particularly severe.
