posted by Carolyn McArdle -

If you avoided the flu this season and you’re thinking “Man, I’m glad that’s over”……Not so fast. The CDC is out with a warning that a second wave of the potentially deadly illness is spreading across the country.

This time, the strain is Type B, which the CDC says is now accounting for 6 out of 10 flu cases.

Federal health officials say illness associated with the B strain can be just as severe as influenza A, especially in young children.

Data from the CDC shows 133 children have died of the flu since October.
