San Diego's flu season: 91 dead, more than 10000 cases

12 January, 2018, 03:27 | Author: Colin Gill
  • Get ready, some medical experts are predicting the worst flu season in history

"In the past, A (H3N2) virus-predominant influenza seasons have been associated with more hospitalizations and deaths in persons aged 65 years and older and young children compared to other age groups", the CDC said in a recent Health Alert.

"We offer our deepest sympathies to the individual's loved ones", he added. At least 46 states are seeing widespread flu activity, and there have been five deaths so far in CT. This could mean two things:either the season will end earlier than usual-or it'll be a longer more severe flu season than anyone hopes or anticipates.

That number, is almost double the 11 flu-related deaths reported around the same time previous year in the state.

In Massachusetts, the Department of Public Health is reporting an increase of influenza-like illness in patients across the state this year.

"The day came when we had extended waits of up to eight and nine hours for a patient to be seen", says Michelle Gunnett, Palomar Medical Center's emergency room nursing director.

Experts say that even among vaccinated people who are infected by the flu virus, their illness is likely to be less severe. "It will help protect them from the flu and stop it spreading to family and friends in the wider community this winter".

We do see the vaccine work in the 50 percent range.

This year's level of flu outbreak is on track to be one of the most active, according to the CDC. Free flu vaccines for children 6 months old through 18 years are available at the department's Immunization clinic, 3920 Michigan Avenue, Fort Myers.

While sick, limit contact with others as much as possible to keep from infecting them. Try to use a tissue to cover your mouth and do not forget to dispose of it sadly in a nearby bin.

If you've contracted the virus, clean hands regularly, cover your mouth when you cough or sneeze, and avoid sharing germs. Throw the tissue in the trash after you use it.

The most recent statistics that include adults were from the week that ended December 16, when 6.7 percent of deaths reported to the National Center for Health Statistics were attributed to influenza and pneumonia.

Eggs are used in the production of the virus, but that doesn't mean you can not get the flu shot if you have an egg allergy. "It's actually more effective for the other parts of the vaccine that are trying to prevent the other flus circulating". "There's an ample supply of antiviral medication, and it's our understanding manufacturers have plenty of vaccine on hand", said Dr. James Watt, chief of the CDPH Division of Communicable Disease Control Center for Infectious Diseases.
