DOVER, Del. - September 30, 2009 The Division of Public Health now describes the state's
influenza activity as widespread, up from the sporadic assessment
given to the Centers for Disease Control weeks ago.
Forty-eight cases were reported the week of Sept. 20. DPH
officials said they saw a "clear progression" from the 14 cases
in the week of Sept. 6 through Sept. 20.
The number of influenza-like illnesses has also increased. In
the week of Sept. 13, the division said such illnesses increased
from three to 22 cases.
Officials also said the widespread designation doesn't mean
influenza activity is as strong as it was earlier this year.
