Could Hurricane Irma Have Contributed to Over 300 Florida Flu Deaths?

This year's flu-related death toll in Florida is now over 300.  It's victims aren't just the elderly or health-compromised people that we typically think of as being particularly vulnerable to the flu.  The latest victim is a 12 year old boy who was thought to otherwise have been healthy.

Dr. Peter Lamelas of South Florida urgent care clinic MD Now speculates Hurricane Irma may have contributed to the unusually high outbreak there.
