Last week the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reported 78 child deaths from flu nationwide since October. Flu activity is surging in Wisconsin.

The Wisconsin State Journal says health officials report more than 500 hospitalizations this week, including at least 100 hospitalizations reported Thursday morning.

Officials say Wisconsin won't be at peak flu activity for several weeks, followed by “many more weeks” of high activity. Officials say it's not too late to get vaccinated.
