IN flu deaths almost triple in one week

A flu shot being administered

Southern Nevada in 2017 had almost three times the number of flu cases reported in 2016.

Flu season seems to be peaking early in IL, with more than 100 more influenza outbreaks across the state this season compared with last season at this time.

"This year has turned out to be highest flu activity in the last four years, and we haven't even hit the peak yet", said Dr. Steven Lawrence, an infectious disease specialist at Barnes-Jewish Hospital.

Brendan Flannery, an epidemiologist in the CDC's flu division, said that "the important thing for people to know is that we think that the flu vaccine will prevent some illness that's caused by the current circulating viruses".

Even though the vaccine is not ideal and is not a guarantee against all flu-like illnesses, Welch said everyone should consider getting the flu shot.

The X1 Tablet also has a new 3:2 screen aspect ratio on its 3K panel, which looked bright and produced vivid colors when I saw it. Also, the ThinkPad T series has new security features such as fingerprint reader, the IR camera, and ThinkShutter Camera.

The department also advises anyone who hasn't already gotten vaccinated should do so immediately. They agreed to explore the idea of doing more to combat the flu, even broaching the possibility of declaring a local health emergency as they did in September during the region's hepatitis A outbreak, if necessary. Go get vaccinated today.

MedExpress, another urgent care chain, said that its Florida centers are reporting the sixth-highest rate of flu among its centers in 18 states.

Dowell and state epidemiologist Reggie McClinton said the dominant strain this year is H3, which typically signals a more severe season.

Pregnant women and infants are particularly at high-risk for serious complications from the flu.

Avoid close contact with people who are sick.

Is it too late to get a flu shot? Flu can make you feel so unwell and exhausted that you have to stay in bed and rest until you feel better.

He said that while the effectiveness data for this year's flu is not yet available, he hopes the vaccine will provide "reasonable protection" against Australian flu.

Deaconess Health System saw an increase in diagnosed flu case from last week to this week, said Sam Rogers, interim public information officer. Keep children home from school when they are ill. Antiviral drugs are different from antibiotics, which fight onlybacterial infections.

The department chairman of preventive medicine at Vanderbilt University Medical Center, Dr. Schaffner, told Healthline that this season's flu started earlier than normal and that he expects to see a moderate to severe flu virus outbreak across the U.S. If you have a cold, you might have a mild fever and some body aches.

All hospitals reported asking any patient showing flu symptoms to wear a mask while present in inpatient or outpatient facilities, and all said they are asking anyone known to have the flu to avoid visiting loved ones until they are well.
