Health officials say that influenza is spreading across Kansas. The state health department says six outbreaks have been confirmed so far during the 2016-17 flu season — two in Leavenworth County and one each in Cherokee, Harvey, Osage, and Saline counties. The Wichita Eagle reports Via Christi and Wesley Healthcare in Wichita both report an increase in the flu, with a 50 percent increase at Wesley Healthcare since the same period last year. Health officials say it's not too late to get the flu vaccine because the disease might spread for two to three more months. The health department says Influenza or pneumonia contributed to or was the direct cause of more than 900 deaths of Kansas residents during the 2015-16 flu season. Meanwhile, two people have died in Missouri from influenza, and thirteen flu outbreaks have been confirmed in Missouri to date.
