The flu is back, but it's milder than before.

Health officials at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention say a second wave of the flu is hitting the northeast.

A few months ago, it seemed to be winding down, but now, it's become widespread, affecting people in six states, including New York.

The flu season began in December and peaked in mid-January, and most of the illnesses were swine flu.
