According to the CDC, at the end of Week 52 (12/29/12) report of influenza activity in the United States was increasingly elevated, with influenza levels considered “widespread” in forty-one (41) states; “regional” in seven; Wash., D.C. with “local”; and one state reporting “sporadic”. Guam reported no flu activity and one state, Puerto Rico, and the US Virgin Islands did not report their activity levels. These numbers represent a huge increase in those numbers with widespread influenza activity, compared to those even a week or two before the final week of 2012. This trend seems to validate the predicted early and potentially severe influenza season suggested by the CDC, WHO other collaborating partners.
