Waiting rooms fill with flu patients

Posted: Updated:
CORPUS CHRISTI -

It's the flu season and it seems to be a flourishing season. In Nueces County, 672 cases were confirmed for the first week of 2018.  During the same time period last year, there were just 119 cases.

The flu outbreak has left emergency rooms, doctor's offices and minor emergency clinics packed with patients.  That means long waits for anyone needing to see a doctor.

Flu patients are being asked to wear masks or move to separate areas to avoid risks of contamination.  Hospitals are also employing extra staff.
