      I didn't know the Syracuse area also runs this series. Here is the WAG report from WSYR ...


      WSYR Channel 9 in Syracuse, NY
      What's Going Around July 1


      The swine flu is finally winding down around central New York; sore throats are What’s Going Around.

      In Cicero, Dr. Terasaka is seeing strep throat; Fifths disease, upper respiratory infections and rashes.

      Sore throats are going around to the south of Syracuse, but the doctors at Brighton Pediatrics say they're viral, not strep.* They're also seeing pink eye.* Some kids have a fever, and no other symptoms.

      At the North Medical Urgent Care in Liverpool, they're seeing sore throats, upper respiratory infections, earaches and coughs.

Strep throat is going around in Auburn; they're also seeing bronchitis, ear infections and the Coxsackie virus.

      In Camillus, Dr. Rovall is still seeing a few swine flu cases, though it's really tapering off, also rashes and Fifths disease.

        WSYR Channel 9 What's Going Around in Syracuse: July 15

        We begin with the latest on the swine flu in Onondaga County. The number of cases here is on the decline, but the county health commissioner says she's still concerned about a swine flu comeback when the kids go back to school this fall.

        As of right now, here are these are the communities with the greatest number of cases so far:*The city of Syracuse, especially zip codes 13202, 13204, 13205 and 13207,*Dewitt, Manlius and Fabius.*


        At the urgent care in Liverpool, they're seeing strep throat and viral sore throats. Stomach bug is also going around.

        To the south of Syracuse at Brighton Pediatrics, they're seeing children with sore throats and colds.

        In Auburn, Dr. Graney's office is seeing strep throat, upper respiratory infections and ear aches.

        In Cicero, Dr. Terasaka's office is still seeing children with fifth disease, also the stomach bug and other kids have swimmers ear.

        In Manlius, Dr. Erlebacher is seeing fewer colds this week, but there's a virus that causes body aches, a sore throat and ends with laryngitis.
