Flu cases on the decline in Two Virginias

Posted:

BLUEFIELD (WVVA) - The flu season appears to have peaked in the Two Virginias.

A spokesperson with the West Virginia Bureau for Public Health says that every region in the state has reported fewer flu cases.

In Virginia, the latest flu surveillance report shows less than four percent of outpatient visits were for flu-like illness -- down from seven to 10 percent approximately six weeks ago.

While cases may have declined, officials advise that the flu bug is still out there -- along with other viral illnesses.
