This is absolutely bizarre that so many can be sick so suddenly, and at a time of the year when hardly anyone is sick, much less with the flu.

“This is really something we haven’t seen before. It’s very unusual to see flu continue to occur over the summer. It’s very unusual to see it start to increase this rapidly in August and September.”
