Nov. 24 (UPI) — The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention warned Wednesday that cases of influenza have been on the rise among young people in recent weeks.

While flu activity is low nationally, the CDC noted that more than 90% of new cases found in the past few weeks have been among children and adults aged 5-24.

Most of the cases are of the H3N2 strain, which was last the dominant strain during the 2017-18 flu season. That season saw 710,000 flu-related hospitalizations and 52,000 flu-related deaths in the United States, the worst since the 2009 H1N1 flu pandemic.
