MS has its 2nd pediatric flu death of season

MS has its 2nd pediatric flu death of season

Local cases this season are reported at more than double numbers above past year with several weeks remaining in the season.

"It's definitely an encouraging sign", CDC spokeswoman Kristen Nordlund said.

Dr. William Schaffner, an infectious disease specialist at Vanderbilt University, predicted, "It will go well into March". More than 1.2 million doses of the vaccine have been administered to Albertans so far this season. Hawaii, Oregon, Guam and Washington D.C. reported local influenza activity. Among those anomalies are that this year, the flu is found to be very widespread virtually everywhere in the United States. High activity of flu-like illness, though, continued in New York City, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico and the remaining 39 states.

Many media outlets are reporting that this year could be shaping to be one of the nastiest flu seasons yet but Maruti said making those kinds of declarations at this point is mostly subjective. The highest rate of those affected were aged 65 or older.

"When those people become sick, that's when they are hospitalized, because they get more severely ill", he added.

SHS also released a notice on January 19, warning students of rising number of flu cases in the county. Slightly less than half - 48% - had an underlying medical condition, most commonly asthma, a neurologic disorder or obesity.

CM Yogi Adityanath addressed the delegates in the summit. "This will help us in doubling the farmers income by 2022", he added. Chandrasekaran, Kumar Mangalam Birla and Shobana Kamineni will also speak during different sessions.

Hospitalizations were still greatly associated with influenza A infection; 83.4% of all hospitalized flu cases were caused by influenza A.

OCHD's Brian Rumpf confirmed that it's the H3N2 strain that is hitting the county hardest.

But Dr. Daniel Jernigan, director of the agency's influenza division, stressed earlier this month that getting the flu shot is still worthwhile, especially for kids. But even when they make that pronouncement, some experts expect the current season to last several more weeks and potentially into April.

The CDC's FluView update was published online February 23.

The SHA said 87 cases in the P.A. area were influenza A and 71 influenza B, although the B strain is now becoming dominant which is normally the case later in the winter season.

The number of those who have died due to influenza this year is comparable to previous years, Werker said.
