Flu outbreak in England 'may have slowed'

The flu was so bad last week in NY, it was the worst since the state started recording the data 14 years ago.

Editor's note: This story initially stated 1,200 flu-related deaths had been reported in a week. With flu seasons tending to last between eight to twelve weeks, he tells Vermont Edition the state is "in for the long run".

"For those people who aren't convinced that getting an influenza vaccines are a good idea, this is good reason why they should get one", Dr. Kwong said. "The flu can make chronic health problems even worse and trigger asthma attacks by causing further inflammation of the lungs and airways, while those with chronic congestive heart failure may experience a worsening of their condition".

Each year, the peak of the flu season occurs at different times. His mother is making sure her child is OK during this intense flu season. "Every year the United States has several epidemics of flu".

The county says school nurses continually monitor the schools for illnesses, and the Health Department is prepared to assist schools with any abnormally-high flu occurrence, but none have been reported this flu season.

The Department of Health and Environmental Control reports individuals over 65 have the highest hospitalization rate and number of deaths.

The H3N2 vaccine sometimes won't prevent the flu and but can weaken it.

Dr. Kwong also stressed the importance of staying home when sick and regularly washing hands to avoid spreading the flu.

Another reason for the bad flu season is because more than 90 percent of reported flu cases involve the H3N2 strain; one of the most hard flu strains to prevent. In the USA, annual flu shots are recommended for everyone age 6 months or older.

The Illinois Department of Public Health reports the most recent report shows 1032 influenza-related ICU admissions, two influenza-related pediatric deaths, and 285 influenza outbreaks.
