What’s Going Around: Cases of influenza keep climbing

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. — Cases of sore throats and strep throat keep climbing, but this week so is the flu.

According to Qwikcare MD Urgent Care, clinics across Colorado Springs, Fountain and Pueblo are seeing a lot of influenza.

In fact, it’s the highest number we’ve reported since this segment began over a month ago.

Plus, just like last week, clinics got hundreds of patients coming in with a sore throat and cold symptoms.

To keep these illnesses at bay, remember to consistently wash your hands and try not to touch your face, mouth, and eyes.
