This year, Indiana and the rest of the country have been hit hard by the flu. People with flu-like symptoms are filling doctor’s offices and emergency rooms. Dozens of Hoosiers have died, including last week’s death of a 37-year-old mother of two from Plainfield who was diagnosed with the flu just a couple of days before. Sara Hallyburton, a respiratory epidemiologist with the state Department of Health, says unfortunately the flu season is far from over. One hundred seven people have died in Indiana from the flu so far this season according to the State Department of Health. Last year there were one hundred five deaths.
