The number of Americans hospitalized for influenza has increased to the highest levels in almost 10 years, according to the CDC's most recent flu update published Friday. "To them, the flu is the flu and obviously that's not the case but I think a lot of people have that belief".

The medical system also is asking the public to not bring any children under 18 to the emergency department, outpatient or doctor visits, unless the appointment is for the child. Seventeen patients now remain hospitalized. "You can get the flu twice in one season because you can get a different strain".

2018 recorded as worst flu season ever in more than a decade, as 53 kids died of the national flu epidemic, reported by the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. This death count is expected to rise as flu season continues. In the USA, said Murti, there have been fewer cases of Influenza B.

So far, there have been more than 1,500 laboratory confirmed flu cases in the province since the flu season began - more than 400 of them in Ottawa.

"That's really going to help to prevent the spread of influenza and other respiratory diseases that are circulating right now", Martin said.

"We are.hearing from some health care providers that there are spot shortages of some antivirals used to treat the flu and flu tests; however, at this time, there is no nationwide shortage of these products".


"Being around so many people at school and at work makes me very nervous about getting the flu, so I am trying to do everything I can to make sure I don't".

It's been an active flu season, and the district's Health Services Coordinator, Janette M. Rodriguez, RN, and district nurses have stayed busy educating students and staff about the flu for the past few months. "Despite vaccination being a third as effective compared to prior years, and taking two weeks before it is effective, the CDPH website states it is ". But the agency said most people with influenza are being infected with the H3N2 virus. Talk to your doctor or pharmacist about receiving the flu vaccination.

While it is still possible to catch the flu if a person receives the flu vaccine, Javanbakht said those who are vaccinated and fall ill tend to be ill for a shorter amount of time and experience less extreme symptoms.

If you get sick with a flu-like illness, stay home for at least 24 hours after the fever is gone except to get medical care or for other necessities.

The most frequent flu virus reported by public health laboratories was the influenza H3N2, a unsafe strain of flu that is resistant to flu vaccine.

"Proper hand washing is the best technique for keeping flu from spreading".
