2 more die of Swine Flu at SKIMS, toll rises to 27

Matt Maurer the epidemiologist for Coconino County holds a vial of influenza vaccine at the county health department in Flagstaff Ariz. The county just like the rest of the state has seen a spike in flu cases and it has overwhelmed some providers Ohio Department of Health reports state's first pediatric flu death of season

Up until December 30, 2017, there were 11,275 laboratory-confirmed cases across the country, 74 per cent of which are attributed to influenza A. There have been a total of 1,050 influenza-related hospitalizations and 34 deaths across the country. There have been 3,854 total flu-associated hospitalizations in OH since flu season began last October.

The strain is the H3N2 virus and it's more deadly than the swine flu.

A four-year-old boy is the first child to die from the flu in Ohio.

The most recent update to the Walgreen's Flu Index finds Kentucky ranking at No. 14 for states with the heaviest cases of diagnosed influenza.

Overall, the state is on par with the nation in the number of flu cases, with Baber saying the season is most similar to 2014-15 in severity. "It's not possible to say precisely when this flu season will peak or end or how severe it will be".

Those with the flu should stay home for at least 24 hours after your fever is gone except to get medical care or for other necessities.

However, Huawei will continue on its determined campaign to pierce through the lucrative North American market. Huawei has always been viewed with suspicion in Washington because of alleged links to the Chinese government.


Symptoms of flu can include fever, cough, sore throat, body aches, headache, chills and fatigue.

Flagstaff primary care provider Northwoods Medical Associates has been overwhelmed with flu cases, said Kim McCasland, the practice's administrator.

"Public health officials will tell you it's still the best way to prevent the flu", Schlueter said of the vaccine.

The H3N2 flu virus that is causing the problem this year has hit hard at the elderly and very young. Rodriguez explained that this can happen because the influenza virus is constantly evolving, presenting a moving target for vaccine makers.

Administering a flu vaccination to a patient is Terri Buratczuk, clinical director of the Tri City Health Partnership, a free health clinic in St. Charles that provides services for those who are uninsured or underinsured. You can also protect yourself by washing your hands, sneezing or coughing into your elbow, staying home when you are sick and not touching your eyes, nose and mouth.

"If you have the vaccine and you contract the flu, your symptoms are less than if you did not get the vaccine", Dr. Cannon said. A study also done on flu vaccination said that it can significantly reduce a child's risk of dying from influenza. They are most effective if they are taken within the first two days of contracting the illness. "Compared to the last three seasons, it looks a lot worse but it goes up and down". OH does not have a flu shot shortage.
