Six flu-related deaths in Illinois so far this season
"We do anticipate the number of ICU admissions and deaths is going to increase. So we strongly encourage people, if they not received their flu shot yet, to go ahead and get one. It is not too late."
Arnold says the particular flu strain affects younger adults and children, specifically those with chronic medical conditions and pregnant women, more than older people. The flu season can last into April.
