Flu season is still active in Texas

Flu season is coming

We'll also recap this past flu season and find out if it's really over.

The next highest total of flu-related deaths since record-keeping began (2004-2005 flu season) was 28 deaths in the 2014-2015 season.

Every year the World Health Organization suggests new viruses to put in the vaccine, two forms of influenza A and two forms of influenza B.

Of the Arkansans who have died from the flu this season, at least 44 had been vaccinated and 87 had not, Health Department spokesman Meg Mirivel said.

Wairarapa medical centres conducted flu vaccinations at over 100 workplaces previous year, with businesses ranging from supermarkets to vet practices, schools and timber yards offering vaccinations to their staff.

The good news, doctors Vanderburgh County say those flu numbers are down.

More than 250 people killed as military plane crashes in Algeria
Passengers from Western Sahara, a disputed territory annexed by Morocco after Spain withdrew in 1975, were among the fatalities. Four years ago, another plane carrying military personnel and family members crashed in Algeria, killing 77 people .

According to the DPH, as of March 31, 2018, there were 8,182 lab-confirmed flu cases in DE and there had been 34 flu-related deaths on the season.

As stated below in the latest Weekly Influenza Surveillance Report from the state, Broome, Chenango, Delaware and Tioga counties had about 3,470 laboratory-confirmed cases of the flu combined. In addition, health experts recommend frequent hand-washing, use of hand sanitizers, avoiding contact with sick people and cleaning commonly touched surfaces.

Doctors say its Influenza B, which is usually not as severe as Influenza A, but can cause problems for babies and toddlers. Flu activity is still high in northwest and east central New Jersey.

South Africa could be in for a bad flu season judging by how badly it had affected countries in the northern hemisphere such as the US.

The influenza B bug, which has been named the Brisbane B virus, has been included in this year's four-strain flu vaccination following recommendations from the World Health Organisation. Pennsylvania has also reported 209 adult flu-related deaths. "So just because you get influenza A earlier in the season doesn't mean you're in the clear". It works considerably better for influenza B. "As long as flu is still circulating within the community, it's still not too late to get the flu shot", she said.
