Flu-related deaths in Travis County rise to 11

Flu epidemic is crippling America - particularly kids: Rate of under-fives hospitalized with deadly H3N2 has DOUBLED in just one week - as CDC warns new viral strains are emerging

The average age of the victims was 85, and lived across all regions of the state. Shelly Harkins says that people should take any precaution they can to prevent the spread of the flu.

Commissioner Raul Pino said "We want to encourage everyone in CT to get vaccinated, it's very important for immune disorders, preexisting conditions, and for people 65 years and older".

The Centers for Disease Control has reported 13-flu related deaths in children this season. During that same period in 2016, there were 87 influenza-associated hospitalizations.

"For most people who do get Aussie flu, it will be a normal flu-like illness lasting around seven days, and many people who get the flu this year will have another strain rather than this one".

- This year's flu season is a brutal one and now more than a dozen hospitals are taking steps to protect patients.

Pleasant Valley Hospital has seen a significant increase in patients with flu-related symptoms. The flu season typically runs until late spring, so it's not too late to get vaccinated, Ballard said.

Penobscot County also has the most hospitalizations due to flu, at 57, with York County at 35 and Cumberland County at 20.

According to The Washington Post , Trump has made about 2,000 false or misleading statements since taking office. According to Holan, "Wolff said then-Speaker of the House John Boehner resigned in 2011; it was actually 2015".

"It is generally less for H3N2 than it is for H1N1 or influenza B". But the severity of this flu season isn't expected to be quite as bad as the 2014-15 season, during which vaccine effectiveness was very low and there were about 700,000 hospitalizations.

The predominant strain of flu circulating in Georgia and around the country is the H3N2 form of influenza A, a Friday press release said.

Aussie flu symptoms are similar to normal flu, but they tend to last much longer, and are more severe, according to Now Healthcare Group's Medical Director, Dr Ben Coyle.

"Signs to look out for are fever, body aches, it comes on pretty quickly and then you had headache and runny nose", said Andrew Zurcher, nurse practitioner at CHI Health's Quick Care on 50th and O streets.

Make sure you cover your cough, clean your hands and you contain your germs by staying at home when you are ill.

But, he cautioned, we are right in the middle of flu season.
