(December 27, 2013) The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says Texas is one of four states with "high" activity of influenza-like illnesses, and officials confirmed Friday that flu cases have spiked in the state.
In the Houston area, 13 people have died of the flu including a teenager, who had the H1N1 strain of the virus, said Kathy Barton, spokeswoman for the city’s health department.
About 95 percent of the influenza A cases in Texas involve the H1N1 strain.
