Finally in a follow-up on the situation in Arizona, The Arizona Department of Health Services released data Wednesday that shows influenza activity continues to rise statewide.

It's as a new heatmap puts part of our county in the red for the number of reported cases of flu-like bugs. The week ending December 30, 2017, saw 142 confirmed flu cases, an increase of 48 percent over the previous week.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), more than 45 states have reported widespread illnesses, and influenza activity across Texas is increasing. Doctors say the strain is not new, but may have mutated. It usually doesn't start until mid-January, but this year, we started seeing cases around November. "Everywhere from babies to elderly are getting it".

"With the increase in influenza impacting many communities across the entire state, it is important to get a flu shot now if you have not done so already", said CDPH Director and State Public Health Officer Dr. Karen Smith.

"You may be in contact with someone who has a lower immune system and you can pass it along to that person", Yee said.

"We are now spiking, but whether we have passed the peak or are continuing to rise, it's still too early to tell", she said, adding that peaks may arrive at varying times across the country as regions and communities experience major upticks in cases at different points in the epidemic.

Ms. Hill advises people to practice the three Cs - Cover coughs and sneezes, contain the flu it by staying home when you're sick, and clean hands regularly.
