Amarillo RSV cases are down. That’s being reported by the city, but the incidence of flu cases is just about double.
Flu A and Flu B are both very common cases this year, but normally one takes the lead.
City health officials say seasonal changes and social patterns have a lot to do with it.
There is no apparent difference between Flu A and Flu B, and someone diagnosed with one wouldn’t be able to tell the difference.
If you’re under five years old or over 60 you’re at high risk of contracting a respiratory illness. Health officials are warning everyone to take proper precautions, but don’t become overly upset because spring is on the way, and the number of respiratory illness cases will drop off.
