Doctors across southwestern Connecticut say they are seeing a spike in flu cases at a time when the number should be tapering off.
Doctors say flu season is usually coming to an end by this time in March. However, charts from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention show cases of the flu are still widespread.
Dr. Stuart Silverstein, of Stamford-based Firefly Pediatrics, says there has been an uptick in the amount of kids coming in with the flu. Silverstein says the symptoms include high fever, muscle aches and sore throats. He adds that there is also a short window of time for treatment.
Doctors say don't be fooled just because it's spring. They say the flu season is not done yet.
