    Dozens hospitalized with flu



    The flu is continuing to spread across Prince Edward Island.

    P.E.I. public health officials say there are now 81 lab confirmed cases and 36 people have required hospitalization.

    There have been no deaths.

    The Queen Elizabeth Hospital has lifted visiting restrictions on its rehabilitation unit. Restrictions were put in place on Unit 7 when two patients came down with the flu.

    Health officials have now given that unit the all clear.
