REID FLU CASES SPIKE FROM 22 LAST SEASON TO 350 THIS SEASON

(Richmond, IN)--Reid Health has seen an explosion of flu cases this season.  How bad is it?  There were only 22 confirmed flu cases all of last flu season at Reid.  So far this season, there have been 350…that’s nearly 16 times as many.  46 people have had the flu bad enough to require admission to Reid.  There were only two last year.  Reid recommends the three C’s: clean your hands, cover your cough, and contain yourself – meaning stay home if you’re sick to avoid infecting others.
