Your dog can get a flu bug

Flu breathing

The flu was so bad last week in NY, it was the worst since the state started recording it 14 years ago. The CDC reported 31.5 per 100,000 hospitalizations from October 1, 2017, to January 13, 2018 - up from 22.7 per 100,000 in the CDC's previous report.

The report also shows that in weeks 50, 2017 to week 2 of 2018, statistically significant excess mortality from all causes is now being observed in over 65s in England. The viral illness can cause mild to severe symptoms that can sometimes lead to death. I suggest this only because anti-vaxxers are still continuing to promote this remarkable myth; 80% of people who have come down with the flu this year did not get vaccinated. "Flu surveillance, for example, will continue to collect data being reported by states, hospitals, etc".

Dan Jernigan, the director of the Influenza Division of the National Center for Immunization and Respiratory Diseases, warned this flu season is very active and was "probably peaking" last week. This year, health officials aren't even sure we've hit the peak yet. Researchers found that the air in the general vicinity of patients who had the flu virus was contaminated.

One measure of the season is how many doctor or hospital visits are because of a high fever, cough and other flu symptoms. "Staying home and out of public spaces could make a difference in the spread of the influenza virus", she added. The CDC says vaccination should continue throughout flu season as long as influenza viruses are circulating.

"The type A virus is more resistant to the vaccine", Khoukaz said. Annual hospitalizations range from 140,000 to 710,000 and deaths are estimated between 12,000 and 56,000 each year.

"This number does not reflect all flu cases in the county, since many individuals with the flu are not tested".

Numerous area hospitals rolled out campaigns and stations to remind people to clean properly, wear face masks when coming in for health care and follow other tips to prevent against illness for the next couple months. Ten children died in the week ending January 13, bringing the total number of pediatric deaths this flu season to 30. This vaccine is one that may help the immune system do a better job at fighting off the flu each year.

Sinus and ear infections are examples of moderate complications of flu, but a frequent serious complication, particularly in people with chronic lung disease, is pneumonia.

County health officials are encouraging residents to get a flu shot.

"Influenza is a potentially deadly disease, and getting vaccinated is the best thing New Yorkers can do to protect themselves and those around them, followed by good hand hygiene", said state Department of Health Commissioner Dr. Howard Zucker. Instead, cover your mouth and nose with a tissue. Warning signs of the flu include: high fever, headache, joint or muscle pain, cough, chills, sore throat, congestion and fatigue. Hands should be washed frequently.
