State Officials 'Alarmed' By Flu Activity

In Florida, health officials have reported a rise in flu activity, including two child deaths, over the past several weeks, with the northern regions of the state seeing higher incidence of illness. The DPH said 70 percent of all patients hospitalized with the flu this season have been age 65 and older. The state may be four to six weeks away from seeing a peak.

"For children and adults with the flu, the best thing they can do is stay home and rest", said Dr. Lisa Santora, Deputy Public Health Officer. "It's across the board in New Mexico".

I was on a call with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention this morning and they were updating people across the country.

Health Minister John Haggie says Newfoundland and Labrador has had 16 lab-confirmed cases of the flu so far this season

According to the latest flu report from the IDPH, about 230 people have been hospitalized due to the flu since October 1, 2017. The CDC is calling it an epidemic.

Last year there were nine flu-related deaths, the previous year there were seven and three years ago there were 28, according to Nydam.

Morgan attributed the epidemic in part to the strain of the flu this season. It's inexplicable. It depends on what strain of the virus is responsible for the larger number of infections; and this year, for some particular reasons that we don't know yet, it is being more aggressive with people 65 years and older.

It began with Matthew Nicholson, 28, losing a video game. "Speechless", said Ron Kutzman, a neighbor of the Nicholson family. A little white before 10 in the evening, authorities received an emergency report of a woman being shot inside a residence.

Plus, health officials say the flu season may be tailing off soon, even though they predict a bump in cases. One of their buildings, Windhaven Assisted Living Center on South Main Street, has had flu protocols in place since January 6 after five flu cases were confirmed among their residents, said Western Home spokesperson Linda Bowman. In Manitoba, the report said the flu activity level is high, but the increase of activity slowed in the first week of 2018.

However, the CDC cautions that "in recent past seasons in which A (H3N2) viruses predominated, hospitalizations and deaths were more common, and the effectiveness of the vaccine was lower".

"Of course, normally you wouldn't see Influenza B until later on in the season and we've seen a lot of Influenza B - as much as Influenza A, basically", says Kendall. "And stay at home if you have flu symptoms so as not to infect others". People should monitor their own symptoms and contact their medical provider if symptoms are getting worse. "With a flu diagnosis, there are medications to treat the flu that will help symptoms go away faster, lessen the severity of the illness and result in fewer complications".

"We also continue to recommend the flu vaccine".

The department offers flu vaccinations while supplies last for people without insurance or who are otherwise not able to get vaccinated.
