Officials report Iowa flu toll has risen to 14 since October

Anna Jefferson | 13 January, 2018, 10:54

For the fourth consecutive week, the state health department is reporting "widespread" flu activity, indicating flu-like activity or outbreaks in at least half of the regions in the state. It's never too late, they say, as hospitals prepare to see flu cases well into the month of May.

Flu viruses circulate in the Southern Hemisphere before they hit the United States, so the flu season in Australia can predict how bad flu season will be in the U.S. However, those are only cases confirmed by a lab.

Unfortunately, the end of this flu season is nowhere in sight.

Hospitals in the Carolinas HealthCare System and in the Triad area have announced safeguards created to prevent the spread of the flu, including are telling children 12 years old and younger not to visit patients.

- This flu season is off to an intense start.

Though a recent study raised the idea that the vaccine could be only 10 percent effective against this year's flu, he said that number does not necessarily apply to the US or to other strains of the flu that are circulating, besides H3N2. TDH recommends that people who are not severely ill call their health care provider first to talk about whether they need to be seen, and if so, where would be most appropriate place to go. It comes on suddenly and symptoms may include fever, headache, tiredness, cough, sore throat, nasal congestion and body aches.

"This strain is associated with more cases and more hospitalizations and more deaths", Jernigan said.

Spieth carded three bogeys and a dramatic quadruple bogey in a 69, while Thomas was four shots off the lead after a 67. At his point, he was lying 4 and was only a few yards away from the second tee, waiting for another group to tee off.

"The difference between the two [types] is that Influenza A - particularly H3N2 - which has been predominating in recent years, tends to affect older people".

"Vaccination will prevent infection in a large number of cases", he said in a news release.

Jernigan projected this year will be worse than the 2012-13 flu season, during which H3N2 was prevalent and there were about 56,000 estimated deaths.

Some people may have vomiting and diarrhea, although this is more common in children than adults. In Saskatchewan, three people have died from the flu this season.

If you get the flu, stay home and rest so you don't spread it to other people.

Even though the vaccine may not be well matched, it doesn't mean you shouldn't get a flu shot, CDC officials say. The flu can lead to complications like pneumonia, dehydration and worsening of chronic medical conditions.
