Flu Big Concern In Connecticut

The number of confirmed cases of the  flu is on the rise across Connecticut.  

State health officials say there  are more than 350 lab-confirmed flu cases through mid-December, with  144 people hospitalized.  

Officials say the bitter-cold temperatures  currently gripping the state make it easier for transmission of the flu  virus.  

Health officials expect the number of cases to spike next week,  when children all return to school after the holiday break.

We are still waiting on Massachusetts figures.
