"We're still characterizing this year's virus", Schuchat said.

Then the researchers took a closer look at the clinical picture of the babies that succumbed to flu and noted that in babies, the course of the infection to death is very quick. "It's not a hugely new strain".

There are four types of influenza viruses: A, B, C and D. Human influenza A and B viruses cause seasonal epidemics of disease nearly every winter in the United States.

"We were kind of due for an epidemic", Christmann said. "We have yet to plateau". "This season, we are on track to break some records".
