Posted: Updated:

PHOENIX (AP) - Arizona's flu season is starting off slowly.

Department of Health Services Director Will Humble says Arizona is seeing an increase in the number of lab-confirmed flu cases but with 50 percent fewer cases than the department recorded last year at this time.

Humble says three different strains of flu are circulating, including the one that caused the 2000 pandemic.
