Flu season impacts hospital visitors

Flu levels in New Jersey have recently reached moderate and high levels of activity, showing a jump in cases compared to this time a year ago.

In Los Angeles County, there have been 19 influenza-associated deaths reported for the 2017-2018 flu season.

Based on numbers provided by the state health department, the flu typically peaks around the third week of February.

The majority of state cases thus far have involved influenza A and do not show much variation in number compared to past year. Mission Health is asking family members and friends of patients to limit their visits, effective Friday.

Radtke says the increased cases this season are partly caused by a mismatch between the vaccine and the flu strain circulating.

Four area hospitals have adjusted visitation guidelines in response to the widespread influenza activity in the area. There have been 11 flu-related deaths of adults in the state this year, six of whom were over 65. For people with a high risk medical condition, treatment with an antiviral drug can mean the difference between having milder illness instead of very serious illness that could result in a hospital stay.

A flu vaccine, available at pharmacies and in good supply in the United States, may not offer adequate protection against Type A, subtype H3N2, the influenza virus strain now circulating in the country, the San Francisco Chronicle reported on Thursday.

"We all know the flu shot is not 100 per cent but it's still the best protection out there that we know of so we still recommend the flu shot".

Nationwide, 12 children have died due to flu this season, while a total of 2,485 flu-related hospitalizations - almost nine for every 100,000 people - have been reported so far.

The uses data from the website's "symptom checker", in which as many as 4 million people a month report their own symptoms.

"If we only relied on confirmed cases, we'd be getting just the tip of the iceberg", says Dr. Randall Todd of the Washoe County District Health Department.

Symptoms of flu include: fever, cough, sore throat, runny nose, body aches, headaches, and fatigue.
