San Angelo not spared from widespread flu cases across Texas

Eastern Health

Protection against both the Aussie strain and Yamagata, which was first identified in Japan, are included in the flu jab offered free to all two and three-year-olds by Global Positioning System and by schools for children from reception to year four.

Pleasant Valley Hospital has seen a significant increase in patients with flu-related symptoms.

The word "atypical" is being used to describe this year's flu season.

Statistics from Health Protection Scotland showed 107 Scots in every 100,000 of the population were diagnosed with the virus in the week ending 7 January.

While data fluctuate on how many Americans die annually from the flu, during the 2012 to 2013 flu season an estimated 56,000 people died, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

The flu strain circulating in Marin County, A (H3N2), is known to cause more hospitalizations and deaths, the Department of Health and Human Services said.

There were jokes from the media that Werker was taking questions instead of her colleague Doctor Saqib Shahab, the province's chief medical health officer, who was home sick.

This particular type of H3N2 has infected more people earlier, and spread faster, than in years past.

"Those other things on top of the influenza outbreak have really contributed to a surge in the number of patients being seen in the emergency rooms", Mitchell said Wednesday.

It's a practice Garcia says they do throughout the year, but are taking it even more serious as flu numbers across the state skyrocket.

Avoid close contact with sick people.

The Government's plan for flu pandemic states: "Scientific modelling estimates that the United Kingdom could experience up to 750,000 additional deaths over the course of a pandemic".

On Monday, the department said that one person - a 56-year-old woman - had died of the flu in the county. Complications are less common and most people will recover within a week.

Still, there have been worse flu seasons in the past.

In Greater Williamsburg, about 80 percent of the cases have been a less severe strain of flu called "H1", Berg said.

Meanwhile, Harris County Health Department officials confirmed there were two reported flu deaths this season, bringing the number of deaths to four in the Houston area.

He said thousands of healthcare workers were unwittingly "putting patients and their own families at risk" by not having the flu jab.
