Doctors see surge in sicknesses
If you think you're seeing more cases of sick people recently, a doctor says you may be onto something.
Dr. Zane Saul, head of infectious diseases at Bridgeport Hospital, says they have seen more people being admitted to the hospital with different diseases, including the common cold, the flu and the stomach bug.
He tells News 12 that they are unsure why the number of cases has spiked, but it is not unusual to see this during the winter months.
Saul says more people are spending time indoors and away from the cold weather, which may cause people to be in close proximity with someone who is sick.
His advice to prevent sickness includes washing your hands and disinfecting surfaces like doorknobs and tabletops.
