But what’s the flu all about?
Here are some things to know:The flu has spread rapidly around the world, and is spreading at a frightening rate.
In the U.S., there have been 2,769 confirmed cases, more than half of them in California.
And as of Friday, there were about 1,700 confirmed cases in Mexico.
