Flu Virus Hasn’t Hit California Too Hard Yet

The flu is hitting people hard around the country, but it’s not too bad in California.

Nancy Sarieh with the San Francisco Department of Public Health says the weather in the state may be one reason people aren’t getting as sick here.

“Being warmer weather and not being cold — it helps a lot. The flu is something that travels more when it’s in the air. If you’re in a confined space with a lot of people and somebody’s sneezing then you’re bound to catch it that way,” she said.
