Influenza Now Widespread In Illinois


Influenza is on the increase across Illinois… and the consequences could be deadly.  State public health officials say the flu is now considered “widespread” around the state… and the numbers continue to rise. 

 

This year’s outbreak includes one particularly nasty strain, H1N1, which was linked to a pandemic in 2009.  122 people have required intensive care treatment because of influenza-related illnesses in Illinois this season… and six deaths are linked to the virus. 

 

Public health director Lamar Hasbrouck says it’s still not too late to get a flu shot that can reduce your risk of severe illness.
