According to the CDC's FluView report, which is updated weekly, 49 states are experiencing widespread flu activity, including North Dakota and Minnesota.

He said the season started early and is "probably peaking right about now", causing a rapid increase in flu-related doctor visits and hospitalizations. That caused concern for some groups, including the province's Medical Association.

The symptoms of body aches, fatigue, and respiratory symptoms are especially severe, leading more people to seek hospital treatment.
