HARRISBURG, PENNSYLVANIA - The flu is no longer considered widespread across Pennsylvania, it's just regional.
That means outbreaks of influenza, increases in influenza-like illnesses, and recent laboratory confirmed cases are in at least two, but fewer than half of the regions of the state.

Figures from the State Health Department show that the flu peaked in late January in Pennsylvania, and that the number of new cases has dropped by hundreds a week since then.

Seventy-seven people, including two children  died in Pennslvania from the virus in this flu season. Most of the deaths occurred in people 50 and older.
