Number of flu cases continues to decrease

LA CROSSE, Wis., (WKBT) - Cases of the flu are continuing to fall, both across the country and locally.

Gundersen Health System in La Crosse has not seen any flu-related hospitalizations yet in March.

The hospital is also seeing fewer flu-confirmed cases in its clinics this week.

Mayo Clinic Health System also saw a decline, with cases falling to less than half of last week's nine cases.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention today reported national cases are falling as well, but 21 states are still seeing high rates of the virus. Wisconsin and Minnesota are not among those 21 states.

Health providers are still recommending people get the flu shot.
