The US is experiencing its deadliest flu outbreak in a decade, prompting the city of Boston to declare a public health emergency after the virus killed more than a dozen people and left hundreds struggling to fight off the illness.
From Florida to Maine, emergency rooms across the nation are flooded
with patients experiencing symptoms of the flu. Last January, Boston had
seen only 70 cases of influenza. This year, the numbers have reached
700, with at least 18 dead in Massachusetts – and the number of cases is
still on the rise.
“In the last two weeks alone we’ve doubled our number,” Dr. Barbara Ferrer, executive director of the Boston Public Health Commission, tells CBS News. “So,
if we continue at this rate to see new cases, we’ll have an explosion
of flu in the city of Boston. We really need to get ahead of it at this
point in time.”
