Kentucky reports 2 pediatric flu deaths

Kentucky reports 2 pediatric flu deaths

"Flu activity has been very high around the country this season and is widespread in Tennessee right now", Chambers said.

The flu also hit Australia hard during its season earlier in 2017, which has led some people to (unfairly) call that strain the "Aussie flu".

At hospitals Islandwide the patient census is up: Beds are being filled because influenza has risen sharply in recent weeks as peak flu season begins its annual three-month romp. According to the state Department of Health, the predominant circulating strain of flu is H3N2, which is associated with more hospitalizations and deaths among young children and among adults 65 and older.

The number of deaths in CT increased to 15 from a reported five people earlier this week.

A total of 456 patients have been hospitalized with laboratory-confirmed flu between August 27, 2017, and January 6.

Kentucky health officials are reporting the state's first pediatric flu deaths.

These numbers only represent those cases that have been reported to Public Health and Human Services as laboratory confirmed cases, so the exact number of cases is unknown.

According to Teacutter, the trend in the number of flu cases this year mirrors that of 2014. Pneumonia is the most common complication of the flu.

Flu vaccines have multiple different strains of the flu in them. The peak of the flu epidemic is not expected until the second week in February. "This is a bit earlier than previous year".

While there have been reports the vaccine has been less effective than normal this year, Chambers said it can still help even if the vaccine was designed for a different strain.

In all, 42 people have died so far this flu season in California, health officials reported, and all were those under the age of 65. Although someone may have already been diagnosed with the flu, it's still worth getting the vaccination, Teacutter explained. Person-to-person spread of the virus from coughing, talking and sneezing is the way most people end up infected.

According to the department, of those who died of the flu, the average age was 75-years-old. "We now have the vaccine on hand and want to get it out, especially in light of the current increase in flu cases".

The Minister says as of December 31st, the province administered over 109,000 doses of the flu vaccine. Washing hands frequently and covering your nose and mouth with a tissue when you cough or sneeze is also advisable.

The statement also referenced "the many family doctors in the province who continued to administer flu shots out of concern for their patients' well-being despite government's decision to no longer pay them to do so".
