Flu season has reached a new peak in Michigan and it shows no signs of slowing down.
The weekly flu report from the Michigan Department of Community Health shows a big increase in reports of flu-like symptoms across Michigan.
The report divides Michigan into four regions. All four regions have seen a big spike in the flu. The northern region is the only area which is not currently at a seasonal high.
There have been 121 total hospitalizations for the flu so far this season in Michigan.
The increase in flu activity seems to reflect a nationwide trend. Previously the south was the only area with high flu activity. The flu is now more widespread.
