The weekly CDC Flu View (Week 42) paints a telling tale of disease across the U.S.  A quick summary reflects the following:

• Of all of the specimens tested by collaborating WHO laboratories and reported to CDC/Influenza Division, all subtyped influenza A viruses were the pandemic strain H1N1 virus.
• The proportion of deaths attributed to pneumonia and influenza (P&I) was above the epidemic threshold.
• 22 influenza-associated pediatric deaths were reported.
o Nineteen of these deaths were associated with the pandemic strain H1N1 and three were associated with an influenza A virus for which the subtype was undetermined.
• The proportion of outpatient visits for influenza-like illness (ILI) was above the national baseline.  
• 48 states reported geographically widespread influenza activity, Guam and two states reported regional influenza activity, the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico reported local influenza activity, and the U.S. Virgin Islands did not report.
