This year's flu season, while still relatively low, is showing no signs of abating, Bloomberg reported Friday. "While the number of Americans going to the doctor for flu-like symptoms has risen steadily for the past two months, accounting for 3.5% of visits for the week ended March 5, the rate remains well below seasonal peaks in recent years," Bloomberg reported. "It is still gaining, however. At a time when the flu is typically starting to dissipate, it is now accounting for more visits at this time of year than during the last four seasons, according to CDC data." (Bloomberg)
