The flu season has been slow so far in Alaska. With winter half-over, only 142 cases have been reported so far. Nearly 90 percent of those were in the Anchorage area, and only five were in the Interior. Alaska Division of Public Health epidemiologist Dr. Beth Funk says most states are not reporting wide-spread activity, and so far, there haven’t been as many hospitalizations in Alaska usual.
