Flu Is Now 'Prevalent' In New York

Murrieta child dies of flu-related complications

According to new estimates from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), as many as 646,000 people across the globe die each year from the seasonal illness-up from previous estimates of 500,000, calculated more than a decade ago. Influenza A accounted for 31 of those cases, and there were two reported cases of Influenza B. The CDC estimates that influenza vaccination averted 40,000 deaths in the United States between the 2005-06 and 2013-14 seasons.

Sometimes, more cases of Type B flu viruses will emerge later in the season, Caldas said.

Arkansas, Georgia, Louisiana, Massachusetts, Mississippi, Oklahoma and Virginia reported widespread activity during the week ending December 2, the surveillance report showed.

"This work adds to a growing global understanding of the burden of influenza and populations at highest risk", lead author of the study Danielle Iuliano, CDC researcher, said in the press release. Residents 18 and older can often get a flu vaccine at a local pharmacy.

Despite this guidance, fewer than half of Americans have received a jab this season.

"The Health Department believes regardless of the effectiveness of the vaccine, you still receive protection from vaccine", Oeding said.

Experts believe the flu virus is spread when a sick person talks, sneezes or coughs. "Now is the time to get your flu shot if you haven't already". "So if you need to be out and about running errands and meeting up with friends and family, it's wise to protect yourself-and them-as best you can". At the top of that list would be pregnant woman and behind that anyone with chronic diseases.

"And we want to do everything we can to prevent that from happening", he said. "While patients with severe flu symptoms, such as difficulty breathing or shortness of breath (when doing very little or resting), should go to the emergency room, we ask that patients with mild symptoms stay home and rest".

Many mothers-to-be, though, have not heeded this advice.

Flu infection can create or exacerbate other health factors, which are then listed as the cause of death on death certificates, for example cardiovascular disease, diabetes, or related complications, they noted.

The first full week of the holiday shopping season saw a spike in the number people coming down with influenza in the St. Louis area. The shot can come with common side effects, however, including soreness, low-grade fever and muscle aches.
