DE sees deadliest flu season on record

DPH: Flu hits Georgia hard

There was one new, non-influenza outbreak last week, compared to 10 total outbreaks the week before (4 Influenza A, 3 Influenza B, and 3 non-Influenza cases).

"Influenza is a leading cause of death in the United States, especially in a severe flu season", Rep. Gregg Harper (R-MS), subcommittee chairman, said.

The pace of this year's flu seems to be slowing, however. This year was no exception.

While flu season is now more than 5 months old, the county recommends that all county residents older than 6 months get a flu shot if they haven't done so already.

USC, Notre Dame highlight many notable NIT matchups
The NIT will run through March 29, with its semifinals and championship game taking place at Madison Square Garden in NY . However, the team lost to BYU, 85-72, in the semifinals of the West Coast Conference tournament.

During the proceedings hearing participants provided testimony regarding the current flu season's impact and its challenges.

Feist said it is likely that the influenza season peaked at the end of January. "Flu activity began to increase in early November and then increased rapidly from December through early February". This breaks the previous record of 28 deaths during the 2014-2015 season. When the flu season reached its peak, 7.7% of doctor's visits accounted for flu-like illnesses.

"Older adults, individuals with chronic health conditions, pregnant women, young children and infants are more vulnerable to flu illness", said Dr. Christopher Perkins, DCHHS's medical director.

"Ultimately, developing a universal influenza vaccine that provides protection against many different strains of flu from year-to-year would be ideal".
