    Almost 7,000 people sought treatment for flu and viral fever last week, the highest number on record this year, the Maldives’ Health Protection Agency said Monday.

    An 84-year-old woman who tested positive for influenza died last Wednesday and the HPA has warned of a spike in influenza, dengue and viral fever.
