The health minister says people are taking too long to get to a doctor when they first get sick and this delay is a major contributor to the number of flu deaths.

As he addressed the rising number of flu-related deaths in the Senate, Minister Terrence Deyalsingh said people in the at-risk groups who think they're coming down with the flu need to seek treatment quickly.
