4 flu-related deaths in the state, including 1 in Middle Georgia

Two children die from the flu in Kentucky Madisonville Influenza activity still widespread

There were some concerns expressed this flu season with how the province would be offering the annual flu shot - but the numbers show an increase in uptake.

Flu-related deaths in Kentucky are defined by fatalities that have a positive flu test, Lincoln Trail District Health Department Senior Epidemiologist David L. Day said. "We strongly encourage people to protect themselves, particularly children 6 months and older and those people at high risk for complications related to the flu".

Cartter said "We're hearing from hospitals across the state that many are full, they have no extra beds, they're seeing lots of ill patients with influenza like illnesses or confirmed cases of flu".

Grady Health System's emergency department visits are up seven to 10 percent because of recent flu or flu-like illnesses, a spokeswoman said.

Commissioner Raul Pino said "We want to encourage everyone in CT to get vaccinated, it's very important for immune disorders, preexisting conditions, and for people 65 years and older".

Trina Teacutter, a nursing supervisor at the Columbia/Boone County Department of Public Health and Human Services, said she thinks it's too early to tell if flu rates are truly increasing this year.

The California Department of Public Health reported that for the first 13 weeks of the 2017-2018 influenza season ending January 6, total epidemic deaths for people younger than age 65 spiked from 27 to 42.

He said: "They look like twins". "They (the FA) know what they have to do". "I think the team showed a lot of good things today". City enter the New Year with a commanding lead over their city rivals Manchester United and defending champions Chelsea .

CT is expected to be four-to-six weeks away from peak influenza activity, which will probably be in mid-February. Many areas report three to four times as many cases as they did a year ago.

These numbers only represent those cases that have been reported to Public Health and Human Services as laboratory confirmed cases, so the exact number of cases is unknown. After its case peak, the flu epidemic will slowly decline until about August.

The influenza activity level in Kentucky is reported as "widespread" for the third consecutive week, according to the Kentucky Department for Public Health. "If you haven't been immunized, there's still a vaccine available, and go ahead and get immunized".

People usually have some immunity to seasonal flu from either previous exposure or flu vaccinations, according to the CDC.

Democratic Gov. Dannel P. Malloy is urging residents to still get their flu shots.

CHOA is now under visitor restrictions to protect patients from the cold and flu season, a spokeswoman said. Even if the flu shot this year is 30 percent effective, it still lessens the severity of the disease. Washing hands frequently and covering your nose and mouth with a tissue when you cough or sneeze is also advisable. "If you're not better in 72 to 96 hours, then see someone because there is a chance of developing pneumonia and other complications".
