Mythbuster Monday

Posted: Updated:
Thoughts of flu are long behind many of us, unless you were one of the people who got sick from it this season.  In this final flu fact follow up: 

Myth: This flu season was worse than last year

We compared data from the Virginia Department of Health and this is what we found-

* We had more flu reports early in the season this year than last season
* There was a small spike last year, but only for two weeks
* This year we had more regional activity compared to last year and even had local activity just a few weeks ago.
