(Albany, NY) -- The flu is still widespread in New York, but things are looking up.
The newest numbers from the state show that flu rates again dropped across the Hudson Valley including in Dutchess and Ulster counties. Laboratory confirmed cases of the flu dropped statewide by another ten-percent compared to the week before.
The report does show that the B strain of the virus is now more prevalent than the A strain in New York. The CDC warns that this strain could lead to another wave of flu, especially dangerous for young children.
