Flu season worst in past 17 seasons, 122 confirmed deaths in Arkansas

Health department: Queens 8-year-old's death was flu-related

In New Jersey, there have been over 7,300 flu cases confirmed this season and one child death. One bright spot is in OR, which is reporting fewer cases of flu and hopefully an indication that influenza cases are on the decline in the West. But in some cases, the flu can be life-threatening, and so it's important to know how to recognize signs of a flu emergency, according to the American College of Emergency Physicians (ACEP). Dr. Hilda Roque-Dieguez said, "This year I already have two patients in the hospital with the Influenza A, actually".

Maryland Department of Health continues to track this year's flu, which remains classified as "high intensity" and with "widespread geographic activity".

"We are.hearing from some health care providers that there are spot shortages of some antivirals used to treat the flu and flu tests; however, at this time, there is no nationwide shortage of these products". If soap and water are not available, use an alcohol-based hand rub. The National Hospital of Pediatrics said more than 1,000 children caught the flu in January alone, of whom some 220 in serious conditions had to stay at the hospital for treatment. A healthy person with influenza also will usually miss three to five days of work, school, or other usual activities, and sometimes may miss seven to ten days.

Russell contends this season's vaccine does offer "good protection" against the B strain, which New Brunswick is seeing more of than usual, and is worth getting. As a result of this, the University of Maryland Shore Medical Center at Easton and Dr. Fredia Wadley, health officer for the Talbot County Health Department are asking the public to help prevent the spread of the virus by taking extra precautions as well urging everyone to get a flu vaccination.

Pierce student Zakarih Swanson was absent two days this quarter due to contracting the flu. In the same time period a year ago, UCSB Student Health had administered 1,794 vaccinations. More than 2,800 vaccines were administered last Wednesday across the state, according to DHH.

The flu can be highly contagious and cause potentially life-threatening disease. See your doctor if your flu symptoms improve but then fever returns and your cough worsens, or if you experience difficulty breathing, pain in the chest or abdomen, and severe or persistent vomiting.

Health departments in Bryan, Chatham, Effingham, Liberty and McIntosh counties will also be offering free flu shots from 8 a.m.to 3 p.m. Friday.

The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention on Friday said the peak of the flu season, which has killed 52 people in CT, is still to come.

"We are still encouraging people who are eligible for the vaccine to go get it and obviously people who are in contact with the high risk populations to get the vaccine also", said Russell.

Those who do get it, should stay home to avoid spreading the virus, she said.
