There were 214 flu-related deaths in Michigan last year.

“The message is to prevent the spread of influenza, particularly to others,” said Dr. Pamela Lautman, director of infectious diseases at Botsford Hospital in Ann Arbor.

Doctors urged families to wash their hands often and limit time children spent alone in rooms with other kids.

Dr. Lamont McManus told WXYZ-TV in Detroit that with winter comes colds and colds mean flu.

“Any infection is bad. Flu is particularly bad this year because it has a number of subtypes,” he said.
