Reports Of Flu Steady Across Lower Michigan, Spreading ‘Drastically’ In Northern Michigan
The latest report of flu-like illness from the Michigan Department of Community Health is good news for most.
Reports are leveling across most of the state, but Northern Michigan is reporting a season-high level.
The weekly report from the Michigan Department of Community Health shows flu-like symptoms have remained very steady in the Southwest, Southeast, and Central regions of Michigan over the last 4-5 weeks. Around 4% of office and clinic visits have been for flu-like symptoms over that time.
Two weeks ago, Northern Michigan was at 8%. Last week, Northern Michigan reported that 15.3% of office and clinic visits were for flu-like symptoms.
Northern Michigan's growth helped to push the percentage of statewide reports to 5.2%, which is a seasonal high.
