It's never too late, they say, as hospitals prepare to see flu cases well into the month of May. "We are hopeful about that, but we hope for the best and plan for the worst". There have been 11,515 cases of influenza reported this season, with 2,455 reported between December 31, 2017 and January 6, 2018.

"Those other things on top of the influenza outbreak have really contributed to a surge in the number of patients being seen in the emergency rooms", Mitchell said Wednesday.

He said it's impossible to predict how each flu season will pan out.

So far this flu season, at least 3,927 people have been sent to the hospital with laboratory-confirmed cases of influenza.
