Death Toll From Flu Season Jumps in California

Eastern Health

The worst flu season in years is only getting worse, with 49 states now seeing widespread misery, USA health officials report.

On Monday, the department said that one person - a 56-year-old woman - had died of the flu in the county.

Williamson and Hays counties each have reported more than 700 flu cases but no flu deaths.

Fraser Health is reminding you to get your flu shot by either going to see your doctor, a walk-in clinic or the pharmacy. "If disease does occur after vaccination, the vaccine can reduce the severity of flu symptoms and prevent both hospitalization and death".

The flu strain circulating in Marin County, A (H3N2), is known to cause more hospitalizations and deaths, the Department of Health and Human Services said. "We strongly encourage people to protect themselves, particularly children 6 months and older and those people at high risk for complications related to the flu".

Not too many flu cases have happened in any buildings at NewAldaya Lifescapes in Cedar Falls, so employees are working off of regular protocols - wearing masks if they have cold symptoms and staying home if their symptoms are more severe, said Millisa Tierney, spokesperson for NewAldaya.

The prominent strain in this year's flu season was H3N2.

The review included people over the age of 65, McDowell said.

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

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) believes the nation is at peak flu season, as the disease is now considered to be an epidemic, based on its medical impact, the federal agency said Friday.

"There has been a very rapid increase in the numbers of people coming in to see their doctors".

The strain of influenza that is spreading the most is called H3N2. It comes on suddenly and symptoms may include fever, headache, tiredness, cough, sore throat, nasal congestion and body aches.

Fraser Health Spokesperson Tasleem Juma says the emergency system prioritizes the people who need emergency care.

If you're sick and exhausted of the cold, there's a good chance you are actually sick.
