DOVER, Del. (AP) — The Delaware Division of Public Health says that only 11 cases of the flu have been reported this season.

The Delaware State News reported Monday that there were more 4,300 flu cases  reported at this time last year. Experts attribute the drop in flu cases to the steps people have taken to prevent the spread of the coronavirus. Those include wearing face masks, social distancing and frequent hand washing.
