The bad flu season predicted for this year has come to a reality in the United States.

There are presently 46 U.S. states with widespread influenza activity.

H3N2 is the flu most common in the impacted states. H3N2 is a subtype of the viral genus Influenzavirus A, which is an important cause of human influenza.

Since October 13 children have died from the strain.

Tamiflu is effective in lessening the symptoms of H3N2. 

Anyone with fever, cough, sore throat, runny or stuffy nose, muscle or body aches, headaches and fatigue seek medical attention immediately.
