First child flu death in MI from UP

The Spokane Regional Health District has recorded 430 flu-related hospitalizations for the 2017-2018 season, higher than any past year since the district started recording the statistics in 2009. "With influenza activity on the rise, individuals in these groups should take special precaution as we continue throughout the season".

MDHHS urges residents to make sure they protect themselves and their families against getting flu this season.

Vann, Chai and Camarena all recommend that everyone get a flu shot and try to maintain a healthy level of hygiene for the remainder of the flu season.

"Viral infections like flu can make people more vulnerable to secondary bacterial infections and we recommend people 65 years of age and over get vaccinated against a common pneumonia caused by pneumococcus". The strain circulating this year -H3N2 - is typically more severe, especially in elderly patients, Dawson said.

During this busy flu season, it's the ninth or 10th time the hospital has opened its flu clinic, Barbera said. A shortage of Tami-Flu is also complicating matters.

Twenty-six flu-related deaths were reported last week in Pennsylvania, bringing the total to 91 for the season. The cold and flu also share some symptoms, such as headaches, potentially a sore throat, fatigue or weakness, and aches and pains. Cover your cough and sneeze, avoid people experiencing flu symptoms, stay home when you feel sick and wash your hands often.

Of the 12 people who died in the Tri-Cities since mid-December, 11 were from Benton or Franklin counties and one was from Yakima County.

Clean hands. If soap and water aren't available, use an alcohol-based hand rub. This disease is spread through discharges from the nose and mouth and it is important that people keep a good respiratory hygiene to control the spread.
