(Swine) Flu Update

Influenza in the U.S. is now at the highest level since the winter of 2007-2008, with 21 states reporting "widespread" activity.

Every state in the Southeast has been hit hard. (

Given official reports and anecdotal evidence that I'm hearing, it's pretty clear that this is the second wave of H1N1 Swine Flu, which is acting independently of the normal seasonal influenza that peaks in the winter. I'm sticking with my prediction that the Swine Flu will reach a high peak in a few weeks, and that any widely available vaccine will be too late to make much of a difference.
