END-OF-SEASON REPORT SHOWS FLU CASES AT REID DOUBLED

(Richmond, IN)--Flu season is essentially dead, and Reid Hospital is delivering its post-mortem report.  This past season, the number of flu cases being tracked by Reid nearly doubled to 600 from 350 cases the year before.  A Reid spokesperson said the increase may have been caused because the virus may have undergone a genetic change that made the vaccine less effective.  Flu cases peaked locally in late December.
