Flu Cases Rebounding in Some Parts of MS

Some Mississippi communities are seeing an increase in flu cases again.  The State Health Department says flu reports peaked in early November with about ten per cent of patients visiting their doctors complaining of flu-like symptoms.  The number of flu cases dropped steadily throughout most of December, leveling off at just over five per cent right before Christmas.  The public health district which includes Attala County has had flu rates as high as 45 per cent but they dropped to around 29 per cent before starting to climb in the last two weeks, now back up to 37 per cent.
