CDC warns a second wave of flu is happening now

WTNH Staff Reports - (WTNH)-Flu season is winding down, but the Centers for Disease Control are warning about a second wave of Flu Virus B, which is happening right now.

The CDC says that B-viruses are being reported more frequently than the A-strain, which had been more dominant recently. A CDC spokesperson says B-strain viruses tend to be more severe for younger children.

Experts say it's possible for those who have already been sick with the flu to fall ill again with a different strain later in the season.

The number of flu-related deaths In Indiana was reported to be at 278 as of March 22.
