According to the Northern Health Region’s Medical Officer of Health, this current flu season has been quote moderate to severe.


Doctor Michael Isaac spoke to 102.9 CHTM, and said that while the peak season for Influenza "A" has passed, we’re still in the peak season for Influenza "B". He said that while Influenza "A" peaked between Christmas and mid-January, Influenza "B" usually peaks between February and March.


Dr. Isaac added that there have been 348 people hospitalized with the flu this year. Of those 348, however, only five have been hospitalized in the north.


He said that around 16% percent of people served by the Northern Health Region got the flu shot this year. The provincial number is slightly higher, and sits at just over 20%.
