The flu comes around every year, but this season local doctors are seeing a record low number of cases.
“Having a normal flu season on top of our current surge would really be quite be devastating for our healthcare system especially as were already quite overloaded,” said Infectious Disease Physician, Angela Branch, according to 13 Wham News.
Branch says adherence to COVID-19 guidelines like masking is what has kept the number of flu cases low.
