New statistics indicate there's a lot more flu cases this season than during last year.

The Walgreen's flu index reports flu activity is 335 percent higher right now.

The influenza virus didn't spread as much last year - partly because more people stayed home.

The same data also shows we still haven't reached pre-pandemic levels of the flu.
