Flu flipping the script this winter

There are two strains of the flu that hit in winter time. They tend to affect people chronologically, one earlier in the season and one later towards spring. That script has been flipped this year with the B version striking first. Kewaunee County Public Health Director Cindy Kinnard says that has a dramatic effect on who becomes sick.

 


Younger, typically healthier, people are now finding themselves getting sick related to this year’s A strain due to compromised immune systems from fighting off the early onset of the B strain. Many are getting hit twice in the same season. That is something more normally experienced by the elderly.
