The flu bug is still alive and kicking in Illinois and while not as volatile as in December and January, it still can be a problem into the spring months. Dr. James Lindbom with OSF Healthcare St Luke Medical Center in Kewanee details why this flu season has been so severe.



Also, the CDC has issued a warning about the rise of Influenza B cases. The Illinois Department of Public Health does not track individual flu cases, but the state's latest flu report does show 39 new ICU admissions from the flu during the second week of March.
