The flu is hitting Indiana hard, but few in Johnson County were heading to the hospital or searching out antiviral medication until this month.
Local hospitals are noticing a recent uptick in flu cases. Ten people each day are being admitted to Franciscan St. Francis Health with the flu, when a week ago the southside Indianapolis hospital averaged one person a day.
At Johnson Memorial Hospital, there were 13 confirmed flu cases in December. That number has jumped to 24 so far this month.
