State Sees More Severe Flu Cases, More Hospitalizations

Indeed, seasonal influenza causes up to half a million deaths every year worldwide, as the New England Journal of Medicine noted, and the nation sees a staggering 140,000 to 710,000 hospitalizations from the flu annually.

Influenza-associated hospitalizations across the state have greatly increased from December 17 to December 23, according to the most recent data from the Ohio Department of Health.

Reports that this year's flu vaccine is not effective against the strain that's circulating most widely: Type A, subtype H3N2. Much of California, Texas and the southeastern USA are dealing with high numbers of flu patients.

The H3N2 strain is behind the biggest flu epidemic in a decade to swept through Australia as the southern hemisphere went through its winter.

"These symptoms include coughs, runny nose, fever, sore throat, fatigue, aches and pains".

"I encourage all New Yorkers over six months of age to get their influenza shot as soon as possible", Zucker said.

The deadly "Aussie flu" now sweeping Britain has already claimed lives in Ireland, it has emerged. Influenza A is the most common subtype in the region this season.

Director of Health Protection Surveillance Centre, Dr. Kevin Kelleher, said: "Most people, unless they are in at risk group, can get better themselves at home".

In Maine, about 55-60 percent of flu cases in 2015-16 were influenza A, with the remainder influenza B, but so far this flu season about 80-90 percent of cases are influenza A. The nurses were instrumental in ME during the H1N1 flu outbreak in 2009, when vaccine clinics were set up all over the state, Carson said. The flu is believed to be spread by coughing so there are a few other ways to keep it from spreading around an office or household.

So if you're still really ill after seven days, it's a good indication of something more serious. "Advice, tips, information and videos on getting over flu and other common illnesses are available at a new HSE website.The site was developed by the HSE along with Global Positioning System and pharmacists and is a great resource for people to get advice and get better".

Local health officials say getting a flu shot isn't only about helping yourself, but also the people around you. During the past two seasons, Arizona did not reach widespread activity until February.

New York State Health Commissioner Dr. Howard Zucker declared last week that influenza is now prevalent in the state, triggering a requirement that health care workers who have not been immunized must wear masks in areas where patients are typically present.

 Wash your hands frequently, especially after being out in the public.

Meanwhile, figures released by Public Health England show a sharp rise in cases, triggered by a surge in two aggressive subtypes attacking the population simultaneously.
