Doctors Expect a Spike in the Flu Virus in November for Adults Over 50
WEST DES MOINES, Iowa -- Doctors at the Iowa Clinic say the flu virus came early this year, and so far has been seen in mostly children. However, they say they usually see a big spike in adults over 50 with the flu in November. “What makes it difficult is a lot of people, you know, they want to endure an illness and then all of a sudden it goes from something that’s mild to something that’s very serious in the matter of a day or two,” Dr. Jason Mohr at the Iowa Clinic’s Pulmonary Division said.
