Number of flu-related deaths in CT jumps to 112

Flu vaccinations attempt to ‘predict’ the next season’s outbreaks. But the viruses they don’t anticipate can step into the gaps left by those they block Hospital lifts visitation restrictions

According to WIS, the total number of flu cases, hospitalizations, and deaths in sc dropped in the last week. It will include a strain of Influenzavirus A subtype H1N1 identified in MI in 2015, a strain of subtype H3N2 from Singapore in 2016, as well as a B type from Colorado in 2017, and another from Phuket in 2013.

But nationally, influenza B is on the rise, as is typical in the latter part of the season.

The week of the report, the State Hygienic Laboratory at the University of Iowa, which is the primary lab for influenza testing and reporting, detected 16 influenza "A" viruses and 42 influenza "B" viruses.

Until then, Dr. Gottlieb noted that improving vaccine uptake and preventing shortages of flu treatments, such as antivirals and IV saline, remain essential.

Both Floyd Medical Center and Redmond Regional Medical Center are planning on returning to their normal visitation policies Monday as flu cases continue to decline.

The flu season typically peaks around the end of one calendar year and the beginning of the next, Cabaj said.

"In order to best facilitate this shift away from egg-based technology, governments must modernize their partnerships with vaccine manufacturers", said Gilbert Saint Jean, PhD, Healthcare Analyst at GlobalData. Young children and the elderly are especially at risk of becoming ill, and it is still not too late to get a flu shot to protect against sickness.

Experts advise everyone to avoid people with flu-like symptoms, get the flu vaccine and wash hands frequently, cover your mouth and go to the doctor if symptoms occur.

"The majority of people with influenza so far this season have been infected with the H3N2 influenza virus", Shuchat said during her testimony yesterday.

There was one pediatric death among those reported between February 25 and March 3, but the majority of the deaths have involved people ages 65 and older. The CDC recommends the vaccine for everyone over the age of 6 months. That will provide the best protection against influenza and set a good example for the public, which could use some encouragement to increase its vaccination rate.
