Flu continues to rise in South Carolina

COLUMBIA, S.C. - Flu activity is continuing to increase in the Palmetto state and while it's unknown when the flu season activity will peak, DHEC is encouraging South Carolinians to protect themselves against the flu.

"The Influenza A strain continues to be the most frequently reported this season in South Carolina and nationally," said Dr. Tracy Foo, DHEC Immunization Medical Consultant. "When there are high levels of the H3N2 strain circulating, there tends to be more severe illness and a higher number of deaths."
