The outbreaks in Detroit, Michigan and Columbus, Ohio are confirmed as being due to A2 influenza virus. This strain has also been isolated in California, Iowa, and Texas. One isolation of Al influenza virus is reported from Texas.

Most of this excess is found in the East North Central and East South Central areas of the country.
