More Flu-Related Deaths Were Recorded In The US

Reported Flu Cases Continue in All Areas of Virginia

Often people do have the flu, but their bodies handle it so well that the symptoms seem like something mild.

Jerry Kratochvil, a spokesman with the state health department, said no pediatric flu deaths have been reported to the KDHE.

Nebraska, along with the rest of the nation, is experiencing a severe flu season, and Perkins County is not immune.

Aaron died that night, making him one of more than 53 children to be killed by the flu this season, while Heather is one of the 20 reported deaths in the Dallas Fort Worth area this record-breaking flu season.

While flu can make anyone sick, the following people are at greater risk for serious complications.

In America, there have been 2,355 flu-related deaths during the 2017-2018 season.

Influenza-like illness continues to increase in DE, and across the nation.

The worst part about all of this is doctors are estimating we've got another 4-6 weeks left at a minimum for the flu season.

According to the North Carolina Influenza Surveillance Summary, at the beginning of January, about 3% of hospital visits were from people reporting influenza-like illness.

But the flu, which has so far claimed the lives of more than 37 children and 85 adults in the United States, can cause potentially fatal complications, for adults of any age.

The overview appears in a peer-reviewed scientific article published in Vaccine in January 2018, based on data from the Vaccine European New Integrated Collaboration Effort (VENICE III) and World Health Organization surveys.

Experts say it's not too late to get the flu vaccine, and that it's the best defense against the virus.

The KDHE monitors flu season from September 1 through May 31.

"Sometimes kids have chronic health conditions to begin with and so they have a lot less reserve than otherwise say, an adult, who's otherwise a healthy adult male or female". There were 5,830 reported cases previous year.

The WHO and European Centre for Disease prevention released their findings from a long running study which shows that flu vaccination coverage has been falling in the Europe for the past seven years.

Across the country, the widespread flu activity has caused Tamiflu and vaccine shortages.

Some schools are shutting down for days at a time to stop the spread.

Antiviral drugs like Tamiflu, prescribed by a health care provider, should be used as early as possible in people who have flu-like illness.

Influenza is a highly contagious viral disease.

Social distancing means that those sick with the flu should stay home from work, school, and other gatherings, and not return until they have been free of fever - with a temperature less than 100 degrees F (37.8 degrees C) without the use of fever-reducing medications for at least 24 hours.
