Flu Cases Steady
The Middlesex London Health Unit reports the same number of flu cases in the last week as there were the week before.
Between March 10-16, 2014, MLHU reports 13 new people with the flu. That’s the same number reported for the week of March 3-9, 2014.
Seven of those new cases required hospitalization but no one died.
The MLHU says approximately 80% of the people who got the flu locally this season, whose immunization status is known, did not get a flu shot.
