Flu Widespread in New York This Season: Health Dept.

Murrieta child dies of flu-related complications

"It is better than having no protection". In Australia, the government reported most of the known influenza cases were H3N2, and Australian labs diagnosed more than two and a half times more cases of the flu this year (compared to last).

Having a global estimate is useful, she said, but it masks considerable variation among countries, and the country-specific estimates in the new study are valuable, because they can be used by policymakers.

Flu season is prominent from October through May and often peaks in February.

The 47-year-old male from New Castle County was infected with influenza A. We're told he had other underlying health conditions.

Influenza-like illness activity is reported low in Central Massachusetts, according to the state DPH. Almost 90 percent of the specimens that tested positive are of this type.

Flu infection can create or exacerbate other health factors, which are then listed as the cause of death on death certificates, for example cardiovascular disease, diabetes, or related complications, they noted. Last year's flu vaccine effectiveness was just 42%, the CDC estimated this year, while preliminary estimates published in the New England Journal of Medicine suggest that this year's vaccine may be just 10 percent effective.

Flu vaccine is available at Southcoast Health Urgent Care centers in Dartmouth, Fairhaven, Wareham and Seekonk, or ask your physician.

Nintendo Switch Passes 10 Million in Worldwide Sales
It has been revealed that Nintendo sold more Nintendo Switch consoles in its first nine months than Wii U units in its lifetime . Being able to play on the big TV or the consoles in-built screen on the go, there are no home squabbles with this one.

Unfortunately, there are many common misconceptions about the flu vaccine that have some individuals on the fence when it comes to receiving a flu shot.

"The Australia data is interesting, but we don't know yet how well it applies to us", said Dr. Michael Parry, director of infectious diseases at Stamford Hospital.

Results showed that the poorest regions and older adults carried the greatest flu mortality burden, with people age 75 and older and those living in sub-Saharan Africa having the highest rates of flu-linked respiratory deaths.

And Canada's flu season is expected to be a doozy, the Government of Canada warns.

But when you have the flu, you're more likely to have muscle pains, headaches, or even a fever. In the event you get vaccinated and still get the flu, which is admittedly possible, the flu shot may make your illness milder, which would be greatly appreciated by anyone who has experienced influenza. The report also finds vaping and marijuana are more popular among 12th-graders than traditional cigarettes or misused prescription pain relievers. "But it is a wise choice - it's a healthy choice".

If you are sick, stay home.

"You can wash your hands", Burstein says.
