Influenza might be spread simply by breathing, study finds

With flu hospitalizations up again, MGH turns to Gatorade in place of IVs

Many media reports have focused on the vaccine's estimated 10 percent effectiveness against H3N2 in Australia during the Southern Hemisphere's flu season a year ago. Complications can vary from pneumonia to organ failure, so treat every flu like a serious condition.

Last week Wisconsin was at the top tier of the moderate level and this week jumped to the lowest of the three tiers in the high level.

If you think you're infected with Aussie flu, you shouldn't see your GP, as you could spread the virus further. "Not an epidemic, but it is widespread across the country".

However, the shutdown will impact the CDC's work on many non-flu related diseases. What makes this flu season stand out is how pervasive it is.

Despite the shot being less effective this year, you should still get it - so if you do get the flu, it won't be as severe.

The latest figures show that nearly 4,500 primary pupils have received the vaccination so far compared with 2,500 a year ago. The elderly, young children, and those with underlying health problems should be monitored carefully for complications. "Being vaccinated is going to assure to have at least a shorter duration of illness and probably milder flu", said a doctor.

Baker's 5-year-old son and 14-year-old daughter started feeling bad on Wednesday. "Ten years of health", Nico's mother told TIME last week. To avoid the flu, the best way is to receive a flu shot. "Flu surveillance, for example, will continue to collect data being reported by states, hospitals, etc".

Southampton vs Tottenham Hotspur, Premier League
Southampton have gone 10 Premier League games without a win (D5, L5), their longest streak without a victory since January 2005. He was missing with flu, and to take Eriksen off the pitch is effectively to lobotomise this Tottenham team .

Visitor restrictions began January 11 at Noyes Memorial Hospital, Dansville, as a precaution against influenza. In California, one of the states with the highest number of cases, some hospitals are treating patients in "surge tents", medically equipped tents that hospitals use during natural disasters.

Children are considered highly vulnerable to the disease.

Charts of flu activity in New Jersey showed sharp increases in positive flu tests and emergency department visits between mid-December and last week. Since October, 21 pediatric deaths have been attributed to Influenza A (including H1N1 and H3N2) and nine deaths have been attributed to Influenza B.

That strain tends to put more people in the hospital and cause more deaths than other flu strains. Nausea, vomiting and diarrhea are also common in children with the flu, unlike adults.

The virus has hit nursing homes and assisted living facilities in the county particularly hard, White said, pointing to six extended-care facilities in Marion County that he said have experienced flu outbreaks.

"The big thing is that if you are sick, you need to stay home", said Dr. Brian Curtis, director of Physician Practice for OSF HealthCare Medical Group, in an interview with the Illinois News Network.

This year, a strong flu strain called H3N2 is dominant and already spreading to all US states except for Hawaii, UC Berkeley said in a statement. "She's awesome. She spends a lot of time with my kids and myself and I knew she would get 'em what they needed to get better", says Baker.
