It's not advised to see your doctor if you think you may have flu, as the virus could spread to other people in the waiting room. Across the country, more than 80 percent of cases this season involve a different, nastier strain, H3N2 - the same strain that plagued Australian during its flu season.

Penobscot County also has the most hospitalizations due to flu, at 57, with York County at 35 and Cumberland County at 20.
