10 flu deaths in Arkansas, 11 in Oklahoma

First case of flu confirmed in the city

The health department now says the flu has been reported in every region of Iowa.

Speaking on RTÉ's News at One he said at least two, and possibly four, people have died.

Flu season, which began back in October, has officially arrived in Southwest Florida with more than 310 cases confirmed during the week of December 23, according to Lee Health.

"When the flu vaccine is effective it can make a big difference", she says.

The Iowa Department of Public Health says a man from eastern Iowa is the first person to die from the flu in the 2018-19 season.

Dr Kelleher urged people to get the flu vaccine if they have not done so already and to avoid sending children to school or going to work if you have symptoms of the flu. The report consists of laboratory-confirmed cases of influenza that are defined by molecular virus testing and positive virus culture test results. With significant flu still to come this season, CDC continues to recommend that anyone who has not yet gotten a flu vaccine this season should get vaccinated now.

Flu viruses are classified by A, B, and C. The influenza A virus is the source of widespread infections because it can mutate much faster than the other versions and is carried by birds to humans and other animals. Children younger than 5 had the highest incidence of hospitalization, with 10 per 100,000 people.

She lost her 6-year-old daughter, Allison Eaglespeaker, to flu on December 1.

The number of reported cases in the state only includes people who have tested positive for influenza in a health care setting - meaning there may be several other cases that haven't been documented.

The flu shot is likely to help a lot too this year, he said, as the vaccine is usually good at matching H1N1 strains.

Eighty percent of pediatric flu deaths previous year were in children who had not been vaccinated.

Also, 66 of 67 counties have confirmed cases of the flu. "I think it's probably the single best thing you can do to prevent the flu".
