Valley Flu Outbreak Easing Up

February 16, 2008 12:00:00 AM PST
The flu outbreak that packed valley hospitals with patients is apparently easing up.Kaweah Delta hospital overflowed so badly they had to set up a tent outside the emergency room to hold all the extra patients earlier this week.

That tent is empty now and the hospital could take it down Sunday.

The Centers for Disease Control says one reason for the outbreak is that this year's flu vaccine isn't a good match for many of the flu strains that are developing.
