Ohio Department of Health reports first child flu death of season

Hays County Local Health Department Epidemiologist Eric Schneider said flu season is technically September through April.

This marks the first pediatric flu death of the season in Ohio.

The Montgomery County Coroner's office identified the young victim as Johan S. Rieben of Clayton.

ODH also is reporting 1,750 new confirmed flu-associated hospitalizations in OH during the first week of January, a significant increase over 925 reported during the last week of December.

Winter Storm Hunter Barrels Down on Midwest
The more severe parts of the storm have moved east, threatening to dump 4-6 inches of snow on northwestern Iowa. We are growing more confident colder air will quickly sweep in during the day Friday and during the evening.

From October 2017 through January 2018, more than 65,000 people were treated for the flu in Tarrant County hospitals and John Peter Smith Health Network Clinics.

The flu is landing more people in the ER than usual. A 70-year-old woman from Mentor died during the week of December 24-30, and a 92-year-old woman from North Royalton died in October, the board said. While the flu vaccine can vary in how well it works, people who still get sick may have milder symptoms. She said this flu season is abnormal.

Rodriguez said that even if the vaccine is weak this year, vaccinating is still the most important thing county residents can do to avoid getting sick and mitigate the illness if they do get sick. Vaccine effectiveness against other circulating flu viruses has been about 60 percent for H1N1 viruses, and around 50 percent for influenza B viruses.

It says the H3N2 canine influenza virus is highly transmissible between dogs and has become widespread in parts of Asia and caused outbreaks in some US locations, particularly in shelters.

GOP senator presses Apple on phone slowdowns
Many of these are demanding that Apple compensate all iPhone users who have experienced their devices slowing down. Specialists from the Zurich Forensic Institute are investigating what caused the battery to overheat.

These well intentioned gestures of good cheer coupled with children returning to school create the flawless storm scenario for spreading the flu even further.

Carolyn Kaltenberg said flu symptoms can appear similar to the common cold, but they are differentiated by a running temperature, body aches and fatigue. Another factor is a fear of getting the flu from the vaccine.

CDC recommends that healthcare providers prescribe one of two antiviral drugs as a second line of defense as soon as possible to patients with confirmed or suspected influenza who are hospitalized, have severe illness, or may be at higher risk for flu complications.

Dr. Cara Christ, the department's director, says parents should make sure their children are vaccinated and keep them home from school if they have flu-like symptoms.
