We’ve been tracking the flu in Michigan since the beginning of flu season.

The latest report shows the flu is still active across Michigan, especial in the north.

Last week, 9.7% of office and clinic visits in northern Michigan were for flu-like symptoms.  That’s the second highest regional percentage reported by any region this flu season.

The southwest (2.9%) and southeast (2.1%) regions of Michigan saw slight decreases in reports of flu-like symptoms.

The “central” region, which includes West Michigan, remained close to steady with a slight gain in reports with a rate of 3.5%.

Statewide levels fell to 3.8%.

582 cases of the flu have been confirmed by the Michigan Department of Community Health this flu season.  There have been 291 hospitalizations.  There have been 9 confirmed cases of Influenza A(H1N1), one of which has been in “central” Michigan.

Read the full report from the Michigan Department of Community Health.
