Doctors say we haven't seen the worst of the flu outbreak yet.

The flu is now widespread in 41 states. Emergency rooms are packed and rumors of a Tamilfu shortage have health officials concerned.

Sadly, 18 children have died and Boston's mayor has declared a state of emergency with 700 cases.

In the Rochester area, there have been more cases than that. The Monroe County Health Department said that since the start of flu season, there have been 1,350 confirmed cases and eight deaths.
