Doctors say the flu season in the United States may be heading towards its peak with widespread flu cases now being reported in 35 states.

In California, hospitals are beefing up their facilities, setting up temporary tents outside their ERs.

Medical experts ‘are’ noticing one trend in this flu strain.

“This year people getting the flu are people who are young to middle aged,” Dr. Karen Relucio of the San Mateo County Health department said. “This was very consistent with what happened during the 2009 H1N1 pandemic.”

So far in California—the state with the highest number of Filipinos—10 flu-related deaths have been reported.

    I blame the illegal immigrants when America suddenly suffering from illness that had one time erradicated. Because of illegal immigrants arriving here unscreened , America is becoming a third world country. The illegal immigrant infected the healthy population of America,,,Let’s send them back home, polio, malaria,TB, flu and many more had been totally wipped out, now they are back.
