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

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.
