Why do some people think that flu season is getting off to an early start in Iowa?
They probably noticed that Iowa was lit up like a stop light on the latest CDC Flu Activity Report…
Is Flu Season Starting Early in Iowa?
So is Iowa, and only Iowa, really seeing high levels of flu already?
At a time when the rest of the country isn’t seeing any flu?
They are seeing high levels of influenza-like activity because of high levels of COVID-19.
Why aren’t we seeing high levels of ILI in other states?
Most states haven’t officially started reporting their flu data yet.
But it’s not too hard to predict what it will look like when they do start reporting in the coming weeks.
