"We are definitely on an up upswing overall for the year. As the CDC has been saying, it's a severe flu and its an earlier flu season. What we're saying is it's a more severe flu season this year."
There are only three states in the U.S. not seeing widespread flu cases -- California, Mississippi, and the District of Columbia.
