FLU SEASON EXPECTED TO BE ROUGH IN PENNSYLVANIA THIS YEAR

Health experts say the state saw almost no flu activity two years ago, but this season is expected to be much worse. They say that will be likely because fewer people are masking up or practicing social distancing now. Nearly 12-hundred cases of the flu have been confirmed during the first two weeks of October in Pennsylvania, according to state officials.  The Pennsylvania Department of Health says this year’s totals so far are higher than the previous eight seasons were at this point. They add that one death in the state has been confirmed to have been caused by the flu.
