Flu season slowing down, but not over yet

All rights reserved Getting a cold is never fun

"After the winter months, some may have the tendency to think the flu is no longer a threat, but flu germs can circulate well into the summer, so we should all continue to take preventive measures against influenza, particularly social distancing".

During the last week of March, there were 216 confirmed flu cases.

Monroe County Commissioner of Public Health, Dr. Michael Mendoza, says that just as many other places around the country, it has been a very active flu season locally.

People who have contracted flu should refrain from engaging in sports, extended periods of strenuous physical activity and physical exercise until their doctor gives them the go-ahead, as the combination of flu and exercise can have serious long-term health consequences, he said. The single week season high was more than 15 hundred in mid-February.

"Flu is not gone, so we encourage people to keep taking those precautions, stay at home when you're sick, wash your hands, [and] cover your cough", said Jennifer Heath, supervisor of the education and partnerships unit at the Minnesota Department of Health. Influenza B often causes more illness late in the season.

That was in 2015, and it was unusual - the three years before and two years after only saw one to two flu deaths each.

To accommodate the large turnover they received last year, Chemist Warehouse added an additional flu clinic this year at their North Rockhampton in Aquatic Place.

At this time, OR is one of 13 states with low flu activity. And the latest numbers show an additional death related to the flu, bringing the total number of deaths so far to 16.

The 20 people who died of flu in the Tri-Cities this season all were at higher risk due to their age or underlying health issues. It works considerably better for influenza B.
