Flu-Related Deaths Reported in Tarrant County

"It had just hit at that school and you know, you can't fault them for that, that's their most precious thing in the world". The Ohio Department of Health has confirmed this death. Meanwhile, emergency room visits for flu symptoms are up 130 percent.

According to state data, previous year three people had died in influenza, but by the end of the February, it had taken 68 lives in California. "We are on track to meet or beat the 2016-17 season". To date, there have been no reports of pediatric death associated with flu. Luckily, he said, there have been none so far. "Most people with the flu should stay home".

"It is a tragedy anytime a loved one is lost and we extend our condolences to the family and friends who are affected", said Dr. Michael Dohn, Medical Director, Public Health - Dayton & Montgomery County.

Flu season in the U.S. typically starts in October and ends in May, peaking from December to February.

Last week it reported that as of December 30, there have been 13 reported cases of influenza-related intensive care unit admission. Each new mom will be allowed a total of four visitors during her hospital stay, and no visitors under the age of 12 unless they are themselves patients or healthy siblings of a newborn. That dwarfs the 369 hospitalizations at this time previous year.

The Health Department said this year's rate of infection is the third fastest in the last eight years.

Lee Health reported similar numbers at their facilities.

Gratton said that health unit is hearing about a lot more flu activity in surrounding areas and viruses can be picked up by people travelling there.

As of December 30 - the most recent data available - the state reported 27 deaths due to flu. That's true for the United States, too, Modie said. Vaccine effectiveness against other circulating flu viruses has been about 60 percent for H1N1 viruses, and around 50 percent for influenza B viruses.

There are also concerns that this year's flu shot may not be all that effective in preventing the respiratory illness.

As flu activity increases in Los Angeles County this week - killing almost three times as many people as at the same point past year - public health officials have a message: It's not too late to get vaccinated.

De Lota said there are varying reasons why patients don't get the vaccine.
