Flu Is Now 'Prevalent' In New York


Some flu protection is better than no flu protection.

Additional informational outreach has included a recorded radio program about flu symptoms and vaccinations, a Lunch and Learn event conducted by infectious disease physician Dr. Andrew Murry, information about the flu shared during the Fairfield County Fair and information sharing via social media. "Some regions see more flu A, which is common, some regions more flu B. Once in a while, you'll get a combination of A and B".

Those numbers are, based off comparisons from Australia, which is wrapping up its flu season.

Global death rates from seasonal influenza are likely between 291,000 and 646,000 people each year, depending on the severity of the circulating flu strain.

Meanwhile, flu activity in CT is climbing steadily.

Influenza is now prevalent in New York State, Health Commissioner Dr. Howard Zucker declared Wednesday. There were no deaths. You may have joined this year's early flu season. "His death is a reminder of how serious the flu can be, especially among vulnerable populations".

Flu experts at the CDC say its too early to know when flu season will peak in the United States and how severe it will be.

Despite the numbers, Yu says it's always best to take the shot just in case. Consequently, the majority of flu cases reported in the U.S. so far this season have been that H3N2 strain. "The virus changes from month to month".

Saul said even if the shot is a poor match for influenza A (H3N2), it will likely work well against other strains. "If they fail to receive influenza vaccination during pregnancy, postpartum vaccination would also be useful in protecting their infants from the threat of influenza", the authors wrote.

Flu vaccination can keep you from getting sick from flu. They found that prenatal vaccination was 61% effective at preventing influenza in infants, whereas postpartum vaccination was 53% effective.

"At the moment, flu has started, and it's the dominant virus across the country this year", he told News 2. There were 1,379 cases in Kent County and 998 in Sussex County.

There have been 612 flu-related hospitalizations reported, and no reports of pediatric deaths from influenza.

The regional classification is one step down from "widespread", which represents the highest level of flu activity.

The flu is now widespread in four states, one of those being Georgia.
