Posted: Updated:

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - In the summer months, doctors normally stop seeing flu cases and start treating patients for sunburn or tick bites. As the sunburn and bug bite patients start to filter in, they are not alone, the flu patients are still filling the offices. 

That is why the experts say it is just a matter of time before cases of the Swine Flu start building again and since the virus mostly strikes children and young adults, a new concern that outbreaks are surfacing in summer camps across the country. 

For now, Americans are advised to keep up their hand washing, stay home if they're sick, and prepare for an uncertain fall.
