The number of people dying from the flu has gone up again in North Texas. Both Collin and Hunt County reported their first flu-related deaths of the season on Monday.
The small lobby of the Neighborhood Clinic on Collins in Arlington was cramped with patients Monday, many of them suffering flu-like symptoms. When asked if the number of patients was larger than normal a doctor said, “Oh goodness, yes!”
Calls for an ambulance have surged in Fort Worth, another sign the flu is taking an unusual toll.
