Three more flu-related deaths reported in Dallas

Three more flu-related deaths reported in Dallas

"With influenza activity on the rise, individuals in these groups should take special precaution as we continue throughout the season".

"[They are] considered to be directly attributed to the outbreak", said Dr. Karin Goodison, medical health officer with Interior Health.

Peak flu season has now hit B.C. and there are concerns about outbreaks across the province.

"It is not unusual to have deaths related to influenza". "They're seeing that it's anywhere from 10 to 33 percent effective, so anytime there's a mismatch between the vaccine and the circulating strain of the flu, you're going to see more cases".

The NC Department of Health and Human Services announced Thursday that there have been seven more flu deaths, including a child. A year ago at this time, there were 834 confirmed cases of the flu. "Don't visit your loved one in a residential facility".

But that's no reason not to get vaccinated, Bogoch and Rusk agreed.

Across the country, there have been more than 13,000 confirmed cases of flu, about six times more than the number reported around the same time a year ago, according to media reports.

Stay home from work if you are sick and cover your mouth when you cough with your sleeve or a tissue. Gregg Warren, spokesman for Wheeling Hospital, Belmont Community Hospital in Bellaire and Harrison Community Hospital in Cadiz, said no new restrictions have been necessary at those facilities due to the flu.

"First we send meals to [flu patient's] rooms, and try to restrict interaction between residents to avoid spread", he said.

We have some bad news if you're one of the people who opted for a flu shot this year: It might not actually keep you from getting the flu.

"Patients experiencing flu symptoms should see a health provider, including primary care or urgent care, as soon as possible, because there is a prescription medicine that can reduce the duration and symptoms".

Influenza is a contagious respiratory illness caused by flu viruses.

Interior Health is reminding people it's still not too late to get the flu shot to be inoculated against common strains of influenza.

"It's definitely flu season, but we're used to handling flu season", Riley said.
