Each week, we ask our emergency docs, “What’s going around?”

This week, Dr. Jamey Olvera, an emergency physician at McLaren Macomb, reports:


While cases of influenza A, with symptoms of high fever, muscle aches, congestion and cough, remain steadily high, cases of influenza B have overtaken the volume of A cases, with added symptoms of gastrointestinal distress.


Viral infections causing symptoms of nausea, vomiting and diarrhea continue to be reported in high volume.


Following the snow and freezing temps, injuries sustained during slip-and-fall accidents have spiked.
