First comes flu, then comes…

Pneumonia and the flu tend to strike in the same seasons. And Centra Care locations are reporting that tendency now.

Most cases of pneumonia in adults are caused by a bacterial infection, while most pediatric cases are caused by viruses, including the flu, RSV and parainfluenza virus (which causes croup).

The following Centra Care locations have seen the greatest increases:

Winter Park – up 500%
Clermont – up 350%
Conway , Brandon & Orange Lake – up 200%
