Hospitals Limit Visits Because of the Flu

State officials report first child flu death in North Carolina of this season

Rapid City Regional Hospital does not now have any restrictions on visitors.

Tennessee is one of 17 states reporting very high levels of flu-like illness, according to the U.S. Centers of Disease Control & Prevention.

Since Oct. 1, the CDC is reporting more than 13,000 cases of the flu-that's six times the number as the same time a year ago.

Achebe said not everyone who gets the flu is asked whether they were immunized, but a few people who got the shot still got sick.

"While flu vaccination is still recommended for people who have not yet gotten vaccinated, antiviral drugs are an important second line of defense that can be used to treat flu illness", the USA agency added.

Hospitals across the country, and even internationally, have been instituting visiting restrictions because of influenza, Cardwell said.

Trump Undergoes Scheduled Health Check
Trump, I can state unequivocally, will be the healthiest individual ever elected to the presidency", the physician, Dr. The president has pushed back against suggestions he's mentally unfit, declaring himself "a very stable genius ".

If you suspect or know you have the flu, you should avoid touching or coming into close contact with others to prevent them from becoming sick. Those who were vaccinated and still get the flu are "less likely to have the complications of pneumonia, having to be hospitalized and dying", said Schaffner.

"It's going to be a particularly bad one", Dr. Deb Fuller, a professor and researcher with UW Medicine in the Department of Microbiology, said. Of the 48 "positive specimens" tested at public health laboratories across the state, there were 42 Influenza A cases and six Influenza B cases during Week 51, according to the December 28 update from the Texas Department of State Health Services.

Only with this mutated strain the symptoms are much more severe, and if it persists for longer than a week, it's potentially Aussie Flu.

So far, 512 flu-related hospitalizations have been reported to the CDC this year.

Not everyone with flu will have a fever. "People become protected about two weeks after receiving the vaccine", said Taylor.

The nasal spray, however, is not thought to be a worthwhile preventative measure against this flu. For example, people with asthma may experience asthma attacks while they have the flu, and people with chronic congestive heart failure may experience worsening of this condition.
