Despite reports of sickness in northwest Missouri, one county health department says the cases of the actual flu are still relatively rare.
They say February is the high point in flu season. The flu affects people differently, but the elderly and children are most susceptible and at its worst, the flu can take over a week to recover from. Those impacted are usually infected before they show symptoms but Nodaway County Health Department nurse Tabitha Frank says there are a few ways to reduce the chance or intensity of the flu.
