Flu season still getting worse; now as bad as 2009 swine flu

Delisah Revell holds her 10-month-old daughter Kelce who is being treated in the emergency room for the flu at Upson Regional Medical Center in Thomaston, Ga., Friday, Feb. 9, 2018. "Once I saw how high her fever was and the crying and she was irritable I brought her in. I'm kind of nervous. I heard how bad it is and I didn't want to take any chances," said Revell who made the thirty minute drive to the nearest hospital to where she lives in rural Georgia. The flu has further tightened its grip on the U.S. This season is now as bad as the swine flu epidemic nine years ago. (AP Photo/David Goldman)
