Feeling woozy and fluish, despite the weather warming up? You’re not alone.
The BC Centre for Disease Control says B.C. is in the middle of a late-season bout of the flu.
In the latest data released Friday, which offers weekly flu surveillance, there was a 50 per cent jump in the first few weeks of March.
The agency said most of the cases involved the most-common influenza A, including the H1N1 and H3N2 strains.
The spike follows a steady decrease in reported flus in January and February. This flu season peaked in late December to early January.
