The Johnson County Health Department said 10 schools have reported greater than 10 percent absenteeism due to influenza-like illness in the last week.

27, almost 1,200 patients had been hospitalized with confirmed cases of the flu in CT and 52 of them have died.

The Department for Public Health, which is part of the Cabinet for Health and Family Services, confirmed the count. He also claims this condition, in its common state, is not as unsafe as current influenza. Other ways to prevent getting the flu, use a humidifier to keep the humidity at 30 to 50 percent since the virus survives best in dry air. But the epidemic is accelerating.

According to the state immunization medical director, the Flu causes approximately 700 deaths and almost 8,000 hospitalizations in Louisiana during the most severe seasons and the state is already on track to meet and possibly exceed those numbers.

Livingston County is approaching its peak flu season, and the season typically goes through April.

No region stands out as being hardest hit this season, said Russell, but the majority of the cases appear to involve people aged 65 and older, said Russell.

A yearly flu vaccine is recommended by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). The technology highlights areas of NY that see spikes in flu activity so the organization can put additional resources in areas where more patients may seek care.

Pace said she knows a lot of people touch the carts and she's not messing around when it comes to the flu. "That might be another reason that this flu season is bad because even most of the vaccinated people are at risk".

Health officials are unsure how effective the vaccine will be against the three flu strains: H3N2, H1N1, and the B virus are the most prevalent.

In a statement from Mayo Clinic Health System the hospital says while there are no extra restrictions for visitors at this time patients are always asked to wear a mask if they have flu-like symptoms as are those who are visiting someone who have flu-like symptoms. "Despite vaccination being a third as effective compared to prior years, and taking two weeks before it is effective, the CDPH website states it is ".

Last month that the H3N2 virus is the most prominent cause of influenza cases this year - and is a strain of Influenza A that tends to cause more serious illness.

Do not mistake the seasonal flu with adenovirusesA strain of the flu virus. And they say it's not too late to get vaccinated.

During the 2015-2016 flu season, the CDC estimated that 310,000 people were hospitalized for flu-related illness. Those who must leave home need to cover all coughs and sneezes (elbow coughs are good, wearing a mask is best), and wash their hands often.
