#Flu cases are #declining in #Massachusetts while they are rising nationally.

Massachusetts January 19 report.

Provider offices across the US report the amount of influenza‐like illness (ILI) they see in their patients each week during regular flu season.  These outpatient providers’ offices, which include doctors’ offices, school health services, and community health centers, are called ‘sentinel sites.’  Here we present Massachusetts sentinel site data.  Please note that
the data represent not only confirmed influenza cases, but also those just with ILI, which may be caused by other viruses.
