NEW YORK (April 18, 2014) A second, milder wave of flu is hitting the Northeast, federal health officials said Friday.
The flu season appeared to be winding down months ago, but on Friday the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reported widespread flu-like illnesses in Rhode Island, Connecticut, Delaware, Maine, New Jersey and New York.
CDC officials said the flu season started in December and peaked by mid-January, and most of the illnesses were swine flu.
But, as happens some years, there's a second wave of a milder flu strain.
