By Shamane Mills

A second child in Wisconsin has died from the flu.

State health officials report that a stronger strain of flu, A/H3, continues to dominate.

Influenza has peaked but the season isn't over and is expected to continue well into April.

In general, this year's flu season has been milder than last year. However it started later and is lasting longer.

The number of patients doctors are seeing with flu-like symptoms has dropped across the U.S., but flu activity remains widespread in many states.
