Certain populations - including young children, the elderly, those with existing medical conditions and compromised immune systems - are more susceptible to serious complications from the flu. It's the first time this season the number has dropped.

He said those who have not yet received a flu shot can still get one.

The Caribbean Public Health Agency (CARPHA) is urging persons to practice good personal hygiene in order to reduce the risk of transmission of influenza and other respiratory viruses. They also say sick people should stay home to prevent spreading the virus.
