Aussie flu symptoms: Signs that you have the deadly virus infection

Eastern Health

The state is also reporting a number of influenza outbreaks in long-term care facilities, with 49 outbreaks reported this season.

"Of course, normally you wouldn't see Influenza B until later on in the season and we've seen a lot of Influenza B - as much as Influenza A, basically", says Kendall.

The flu epidemic is growing in North Carolina, with 26 deaths now linked to the virus after four more deaths were reported last week.

"The best way to stop the spread of flu is to follow simple hygiene practices".

In Florida, nearly 41,000 cases have been recorded, almost three times more than reported cases previous year.

The Iowa Department of Public Health (IDPH) announced eight deaths occurred this week, bringing the total number of flu-related deaths to 14 since October 1, 2017.

"If someone is out with the flu or something to be of concern, they will give us a phone call and give us a heads up so we can make sure other parents are aware".

During this flu season there have already been 130 confirmed influenza cases in the Helena area, according to Lewis and Clark Public Health.

The actor said he believes women's claims deserve to be heard and that he would not "actively refute" the allegations against him. Franco spoke with Colbert Tuesday night about claims on social media, some of which were from women also interviewed by the L.A.

"We think that the maximum amount of influenza activity likely peaked in the last week of December", she said. The review included people over the age of 65, McDowell said.

Health professionals say one reason for the spike in cases may be that year's flu vaccine was not as effective as in other years.

How to help prevent the spread of flu at your home.

According to CDC director Dr. Brenda Fitzgerald, "While our flu vaccines are far from ideal, they are the best way to prevent getting sick from the flu, and it is not too late to get one".

"It is so important that people are aware of the steps they can take to avoid being struck down by the virus, and know that it's not too late to be vaccinated". Persons who develop flu symptoms should seek medical advice to determine if they should be treated with an antiviral drug, which could shorten the course of the illness or reduce its severity. Use a tissue or cough or sneeze into the crook of your elbow or arm.

Avoid touching your eyes, nose or mouth. "Be sure to wash your hands, particularly if you are sick yourself", Harris said.

Alcohol based gels are the next best thing if you don't have access to soap and water. Disinfect surfaces that you touch frequently, which become a hotbed for germs.
