WACO (December 18, 2013) The Waco-McLennan County Public Health District says the number of flu cases in the county has risen over the past three weeks.
During the last week of November, 29 cases were reported.
During the first week of December 113 cases were reported, and last week another 344 cases were reported, the health district said.
Flu season typically doesn’t peak until January or February, so it’s not too late to get a flu shot, health officials said.
Regular hand-washing and cough hygiene can help slow the spread of flu, health officials said.
