Dallas County Health and Human Services (DCHHS) is reporting three additional flu-related deaths in Dallas County totaling 72 flu-related deaths for the 2017-2018 season.

This flu season, the Health Department has confirmed four pediatric deaths in the city.

"Generally speaking, by this time of the year, normally we're starting to see a drop off in the number of influenza cases, but I saw six on Tuesday of this week", he said recently.

"Levels of influenza-like illness across the country are now as high as we observed at the peak of the 2009 H1N1 pandemic", Dr. Anne Schuchat, the CDC's acting director, said during a meeting with health officials last month. Compared to the previous week, this was a decrease of 7,968 cases. Approximately 4,119 hospitalizations have been reported since flu season began.

When it comes to getting an annual flu shot, doctors and other health professionals don't necessarily follow medical advice.

During the most recent weekly flu surveillance, which runs through February 24, DPH reported that about 12 percent of hospital emergency room visits are assocaited with the flu, down from 14 percent the previous three "peak weeks".

Next Battlefield Leaked. It's Called Battlefield V, and is Set During WWII
Now it seems retro settings are becoming the norm because Battlefield 5 might also be set during the World War II time period. However, DICE is still interested in making the sequel, so fingers crossed something comes into fruition in the near future.

By far, the highest number of deaths - 130 - are people age 65 and older.

This flu season is one of the worst in memory.

Flu season in North Carolina runs into May, according to state health officials. It's surprising but it happens and it happens every year.

Gratefully, the B strain is included in the vaccine, but Morrow says don't wait to get the vaccine.

It is not too late to receive the flu vaccine.

"This year, unfortunately, it is worse than what we have seen over the last 10 years nearly".
