Flu Cases Down In KY

Flu and other major viruses are down. Doctors say it’s one of the positive effects of the pandemic.“Personally, I’ve not seen a single flu this year,” Doctor Ryan Stanton said. “I’ve not seen a single flu, RSV, norovirus, human metapneumovirus, or any of the common players that we see this time of year.”The CDC listed Kentucky as “very high” for flu activity in the first week of January 2020. Exactly one year later, the commonwealth is “minimal.”“Basically from what the CDC is saying, we’ve cut the flu volume this year by greater than 80%,” Stanton explained.
