EXPERT ADVISORY

The flu is hitting hard across the nation, and Michigan is no exception. Schools on the west side of the state are reporting large student absences, health facilities across the region are flooded with patients exhibiting flu-like symptoms, and a lab at the University of Michigan School of Public Health that records flu data to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has been busy keeping up with an abundance of laboratory samples.

International flu expert Arnold Monto, U-M professor of epidemiology and global public health, shares what is happening closer to home, and says Michigan and the rest of the country may continue to see flu in the months ahead.
