Beware of spreading the flu this Super Bowl Sunday — it’s the most virulent in years

Having your local team in the Super Bowl is nothing to sneeze at — but it could leave residents with a nasty bout of the flu.

This year’s flu season is set to be one of the worst on record. The outbreak is already responsible for the deaths of 37 children, and more are expected over the coming weeks, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. And more people have seen the doctor or been hospitalized because of the flu than in years past. Outpatient visits because of the flu have skyrocketed, eclipsing every season except 2009-2010 when the swine flu strain led to a global pandemic.
