The flu has been popping up around the area. As teachers and students may notice, there have been a lot of absences due to the current flu outbreak. This may be because some students (myself included) forgot to take the flu shot this year. But some may have intentionally avoided the shot. I can’t say for sure. In one of the sources you can find the reports of the recent months and see how it's been going yourself. The treatment for the flu include : supportive care, self care, and various medications.
