    • Nationally, the proportion of deaths reported to the National Center for Health Statistics attributed to
    pneumonia and influenza (P&I) remains below the epidemic threshold this week.
    • For Week 4, the geographic spread of influenza was reported as widespread in Puerto Rico and 49 states,
    and regional in 1 state. The District of Columbia reported local activity, the U.S. Virgin Islands reported
    sporadic activity, and Guam did not report.
