  • Flu killing 4000 every week and is responsible for 1 in 10 deaths in the US right now - with Tamiflu shortages reported

The flu season this year is bad. The last season that gave similar numbers was in 2003.

The number of in-patients at PRMC equals roughly 25 percent of the people coming to the emergency room with flu symptoms, she said.

167 deaths were reported statewide as of last week. "Flu vaccination is one of the most important prevention measures to take".

The study showed that adding thermometer data, which captures clinically relevant symptoms (temperature) likely even before a person goes to the doctor, to simple forecasting models, improved predictions of flu activity.

"What we do tend to believe is that whether the flu shot actually stops you from getting the flu, it definitely seems to have a moderating effect on the severity of influenza", said Mullins. On an average, 65 percent of the babies died within 7 days of the onset of the infection. That ties the highest level seen in the nation during the swine flu outbreak in 2009, AP reported. "With kids, its about 50% have some other condition, usually asthma, neurological disease, or obesity".

Recent controversy has surrounded Sindecuse's inability to administer the flu vaccine to individuals who lack certain insurance plans. During the current flu season, H3N2 viruses have been most common.

Epidemiologists and virus experts don't have an explanation yet for why the flu this season has been worse than usual, Schuchat said. The team said some have suggested the possibility of slower development of age-related immune response to influenza B.

Budd said influenza A H3N2 is the predominant strain of the virus this season, which is often linked with higher mortality and hospitalization rates among older adults and young children, though influenza A (H1N1) pdm09 and influenza B viruses are circulating as well.

US Olympic Men's Ice Hockey Preview and Prediction: USA vs. Slovenia
Kroselj stopped 34 of the 36 shots he faced to pick up the victory, giving up goals to Brian O'Neill and Jordan Greenway. Though the USA women are defending world champs, the Canadians bring a 22-game Olympic winning streak into the contest.

In a related commentary in the same issue, Kathryn Edwards, MD, a pediatric infectious disease specialist at Vanderbilt University in Nashville, wrote that the group's characterization of children's flu deaths is almost identical to findings in a study published more than a decade earlier, which was a somber reminder of the impact of flu on children. Edwards wondered. She also noted that bronchiolitis was diagnosed in 22 deaths.

People who have not had a flu shot can still get one by contacting their health care provider, local pharmacy or county public health office.

While some counties were reporting less new cases, it was unclear Friday based on surveillance data if this season's influenza has hit it's peak in California.

To that end, the hospital plans to keep the visitor restrictions in place for at least another month, if not longer, as patients and doctors try to weather a particularly contagious storm.
