The Texas Health Department reports increased flu activity across the state.

"The "Aussie flu", H3N2, is the same strain that was circulating a year ago and is not unusual", she added. In particular, detections of type A flu (H3N2) and type B surged.

According to the NHS, symptoms for flu can include an aching body, exhaustion, loss of appetite, sudden fevers, nausea and headaches.Vaccination is the best protection we have against the flu.

Health officials say a pregnant woman has died of the flu in Tennessee.

Pharmacies have been scrambling to restock their shelves with Tamiflu this flu-season.

He noted that FluSurvey's map only contains data from 7,500 Britons and should be interpreted with caution because it simply provides information for flu-like illnesses and does not specifically reveal the rising number of cases of the H3N2. At the time of the 2014-2015 epidemic, mortality rates due to P&I reached 8.5 percent. That is up 21 states since last week. Last year, there were a total of 210 through March. There were 344 flu-related intensive care unit admissions across IL and 135 outbreaks from the start of 2017 through December 31. Many others can not call in sick due to the precarious nature of their employment, putting neighbors and family at risk of infection. All the emergency rooms are now packed with the patient. UCLA Medical Center in Santa Monica, for example, typically sees around 140 patients per day.

This year's flu vaccine is about 60% effective, and it's not too late to get it.

Doing so is "very important", Tam said, "as we move ahead to future years of vaccine program planning and recommendations". As hospitals and emergency services find themselves overcrowded and virtually unable to meet the demands of a predictable disease outbreak, health insurance company profits are increasing at levels in excess of the regular economy as a whole.
