The flu is widespread in 30 states and has claimed almost 2,000 deaths this season, including 19 children, according to the Centers of Disease Control and Prevention.

Nearly every state reports elevated activity, the CDC said in its weekly update Friday.

The CDC estimated there have been at least 3.7 million flu cases so far this season, 32,000 requiring hospitalization. It reported 1,900 deaths, including 19 children.
