The current flu season has surpassed the swine flu epidemic of 2009, according to the Center for Disease Control.
A report from the organization shows that one out of every 13 visits to the doctor last week was due to flu symptoms, which matches the numbers seen in 2009.
Doctors are agreeing with the CDC on this being the worst flu season in decades.
43 states now have high patient traffic with hospitalizations continuing to climb.
Only Hawaii and Oregon have avoided the epidemic.
