Minnesota confirms first child death this flu season

The number of people seeing health care professionals because of influenza-like illnesses-defined as a fever over 100 degrees Fahrenheit with a cough or a sore throat-is almost double as many as a year ago.

While confirmed cases of flu are on the rise in the province, everything seems to be on track for another average Nova Scotian flu season as we begin to enter the 6-8-week period of peak flu activity.

"Flu is everywhere in the US right now", Dr Dan Jernigan, director of the influenza division at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, told reporters on a conference call. So far this season, there have been 1029 lab-confirmed cases.

Although the flu season may be peaking now, there will likely be a second wave of a different kind of flu called influenza B, Jernigan said-so vaccination is still worthwhile.

Making the problem worse this season is the type of flu that's spreading: H3N2.

Goldman noted Friday while some media reports have characterized this year's vaccine as less effective in stopping H3N2, people should remember the shot can still help people who come down with illness from getting as sick. The most recent hospitalization rate for flu was 22.7 per 100,000 people, up from 13.7 per 100,000 last week. It comes on suddenly and symptoms may include fever, headache, tiredness, cough, sore throat, nasal congestion and body aches.

"It's not too late to get your flu shot". It is one of the four strains in the flu vaccine, but it's mutating, making it hard to vaccinate against.

"We hit the highest number of emergency room visits we have ever hit at Parkland Hospital" said Dr. Joseph Chang, Parkland Hospital associate medical chief.

The prominent strain in this year's flu season was H3N2.

In the previous season, 219 people died in North Carolina from the flu.

"With a 48 percent increase in flu cases during this past week, I urge Delawareans to take the flu seriously, and if you have not already done so, to get your flu vaccine as soon as possible", said DPH Director Dr. Karyl Rattay. They can prevent serious complications from the flu, the CDC said, particularly for people in the highest risk groups: children younger than 5 and adults older than 65.

The advice from Werker, Shahab and others is to stay home when you're sick, cough into your sleeve and always wash your hands. There have been 49 cases of influenza reported in Kentucky's long-term care centers, the department reported.
