Holiday Season Bringing Viral Illnesses With It
(Undated) -- The holiday season is bringing an increase of viral illnesses as people are getting ready for gatherings. While flu activity is still at low levels overall, an official with the CDC says there's going to be many weeks of increasing flu activity and estimates that nearly 780-thousand people have had it so far this season. The director of the CDC says these are the months when flu likes to spread, especially since everyone travels for holidays. And while positive Covid causes seem to be plateauing, cases are expected to increase over the next couple of months.
