"While we believe that flu season has peaked for us in DE, flu is still widespread and at high levels in our state, and will likely continue to circulate for weeks to come", said DPH Director Dr. Karyl Rattay. The latest data indicates 2,256 reported cases this season. Flu cases normally fall off sharply after peaking, although the flu sometimes surges again, with a different strain responsible for the surge.

Public health officials remind the public that there are several weeks remaining in the flu season, and the number of hospitalizations and deaths will continue to increase.

Nationally, public health officials last week said the worst of the flu season is over, although the level of transmission remains high.

Last year, the flu season in Wyoming peaked at the end of January.

If the season lasts 20 weeks, as most seasons do, it should end in about five weeks, he said.
