PRINCETON—With 43 reported deaths to date, the flu season is
Indiana’s deadliest in five years, but state health officials say the
symptoms some people may be having aren’t influenza afterall; rather,
they may have the norovirus or “stomach flu.”
The Indiana State Dept. of Health reported a
new strain of norovirus is making its way across throughout Europe and
North America. The new strain, GII.4 Sydney, originated in Australia.
