the percent of Influenza-Like Illness (ILI, defined by fever >100°F and cough and/or sore throat) visits at sentinel outpatient facilities has continued to increase and remains higher than the previous two years in the same week.

Although regions may not all experience the same intensity of ILI at similar times, infections due to influenza can be found throughout Massachusetts during flu season. Figure 4 shows that all regions are reporting high ILI activity.
