A sudden spike in flu cases over the holidays is filling emergency rooms and urgent care centers across the state and has health officials fearing this could be one of the worst influenza seasons in years…The Mayo Clinic’s hospital in Mankato now has 15 patients with the flu, said Kevin Burns, director of public affairs for Mayo Health System. They are all in one unit, in part to control the spread of infection, which is standard procedure, he said. “But what is unusual is the timing,” he said. “It’s quite a bit earlier than we would normally see.”
