Washtenaw County Flu Activity

April 28, 2017:

  • Influenza is circulating at a low level at this time. Influenza A levels peaked in Washtenaw County at the end of February.  Influenza B activity peaked at the end of March. Both influenza A and B viruses are still being detected locally.
  • Flu-associated hospitalizations are finally decreasing.  We have seen the second highest number of hospitalizations in the past decade this flu season. Unfortunately, a flu-related death occurred in a Washtenaw County child in early April, the first one reported locally since 2003.
