Georgia sees early flu activity

Flu activity rising in Georgia

ATLANTA – The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said Georgia is seeing the most flu activity in the country.

The map from the CDC puts Georgia in the "low" range, but that is above the "minimal" ranking most of the country is seeing.

The map is based on the number of people who go to the doctor with flu-like symptoms.

Another map from the CDC shows that Georgia saw "sporadic" flu activity for the week ending Oct. 10, the most recent week available. 

State Epidemiologist Dr. Cherie Drenzek from the Department of Public Health dropped by to discuss what those numbers mean. Click the video above to see what she says.
