At least 1,300 people have died from the flu in the U.S. so far this season.

That’s according to new estimates from the CDC.

It released a preliminary estimate for the season on Friday.

Health officials reported 2.6 million have contracted the flu so far.

Of the flu-related deaths, ten of the victims were children.

Last week every state except Alaska saw a significant spread of the virus.
