Confirmed cases of flu rising across NY state

MI health officials are adding to the call for flu vaccinations following the December 21, 2018, announcement of the state's first confirmed pediatric flu death of the season in an Osceola County child who was infected with influenza A/H1N1.

Last year's flu season, keep in mind, was particularly severe.

One of the deadliest influenza years for children was 2017 when 80 percent of the children who died of flu complications hadn't been vaccinated. As of December 22, nine states are experiencing high flu activity, while seven states and Puerto Rico are experiencing moderate flu activity.

Officials are urging everyone to get a flu shot, but according to the CDC, only around 40 percent of Americans will do so.

Swinney said the players were found to have trace amounts of a substance called ostarine, which can act like an anabolic steroid. We've always told him: "Whatever you decide to do, we're with you 100 percent", offensive coordinator Chip Long said.

Doctors say that there is still time to get a flu shot, although the average duration of flu season is 16 weeks. There is already widespread flu activity in 11 states. For adults ages 18 years and older, flu vaccination rates rose from 38.5% to 44.9%.

New York City and nine states (Alabama, Arizona, Arkansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Missouri, New Jersey, South Carolina, and Virginia) experienced moderate activity, according to the latest numbers. So far this season there have been six admissions to ICU with confirmed influenza reported to PHA and two deaths reported in ICU patients who had lab confirmed influenza. "We extend our deepest sympathies to the child's family and hope we can help people understand that flu is a serious illness".

Officials say the number of people hospitalized with laboratory-confirmed flu was 363 this past week, a 41 percent increase over the previous week.
