Texas Hit By Worst Flu Season in Decades

Confirmed child flu cases at CHOA hospitals have more than doubled over the past few weeks from an average of 12 percent to 28 percent.

"We've been lucky", she said, "I'm stressing handwashing and providing additional cleaning supplies for classrooms". So far this season there have been 20 pediatric deaths, most from influenza A.

"(People) tend to congregate indoors, not go outside.

"It looks like it's starting to level out", said the CDC's Lynnette Brammer, who oversees flu tracking. In the first week of 2018 alone, 425 new cases were reported from 38 counties.

"The total number of people who have died from this year's iteration of the influenza family of viruses was just 0.2 percent below the current season's threshold for being considered a flu epidemic".

Bob Phillips, CEO of Walker Baptist Medical Center in Jasper, and Pat Spiller, the hospital's infection prevention manager, said Friday afternoon that the hospital has seen an uptick in activity with flu and flu-like symptoms recently, in what Phillips described as a "rough flu season".

Patients with complicated cases of influenza can develop secondary bacterial infections that cause pneumonia, Fries said.

According to both Dr. Sims and the CDC, that claim is TRUE.

"We have had some of those detected, but not all tests are sub-typed out", Allen said.

Veterinarians are even warning pet owners about canine influenza.

In Greater Williamsburg, about 80 percent of the cases have been a less severe strain of flu called "H1", Berg said.

But the president of Pharmacists Manitoba says Tamiflu is best used for the more severe cases.

The vaccine is widely available at commercial pharmacies, doctors' offices and city clinics; it's typically free or covered by a co-pay.

Stacey Anderson of the DPHHS Communicable Disease Epidemiology section agrees.

A Scottish Government spokes-woman said: "The most common flu virus being detected is one covered by this year's vaccine". Additional factors like patients' ages may also affect the degree of protection a particular vaccine offers.

Department statistics also show that over the last week there has been a 78% increase in people visiting the doctor with flu-like symptoms; a 50% increase in people taken into hospital with the flu and a 65% increase in intensive care flu admissions, compared to the previous week.
