Spike Of Flu Cases In Colorado, More Than Most States

​DENVER (CBS4) – The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says there’s a spike in flu cases, with Colorado running at a higher level than most states in the U.S.

Dr. Michelle Barron with the University of Colorado Hospital says Colorado’s flu season started in October. Since then, a CDPHE report shows more than 300 people have been hospitalized for flu-like symptoms.

“You could argue that Colorado has been seeing cold spells, so people are more closely connected indoors,” Barron said. “We like to boast about our skiing, and so people might just be in Colorado more, just coming out for vacation.”
