5 more flu-related deaths reported Dallas County, 3 in Tarrant County

5 more flu-related deaths reported Dallas County, 3 in Tarrant County

Earlier Wednesday, state health officials said a 4-year-old boy from Montgomery County died.

It's been a busy time for the hospital with all of the people stopping by the emergency room with flu like symptoms.

The 2016-2017 influenza season was the worst on record in Oregon, according to statistics from the Oregon Health Authority - and so far, this year's numbers are even higher.

"B$3 ecause the flu can have serious, life-threatening effects, including death, everyone should protect themselves and others from the contraction and spread of the virus by getting vaccinated", stated a report issued by the Tulare County Public Health department. This means there could be more deaths than the three that are being reported.

"It's safe to say that we are now experiencing a flu outbreak and these three voluntarily reported flu-related deaths reflect that", said Chief Epidemiologist Russell Jones.

Schneider said the key to surviving the flu season without getting ill is to wash hands often, get the flu vaccine and exercise isolation from the public when you are sick with the flu.

"If you're sick, try to stay home if you can", Manrique said. But the symptoms will be milder and probably have a shorter duration.

Let your doctor know right away if you have symptoms suggestive of the flu during flu season.

The body takes about two weeks to produce a full immune response following inoculation.

"We still are entering the first peak month in this neck of the woods out here", Dr. Michael Johnson, director of community health at the Southern Nevada Health District, said Friday. The Denton County Public Health department offers low-priced immunizations to those who qualify.

But Harding said that is not the case at FMC. However, the state does track pediatric deaths.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reports widespread flu activity in 46 states, and officials predict the season could be as severe as 2014-15. The district has also been sending parents messages, by telephone, text, email, and on social media, suggesting ways to help minimize exposure to the flu. "Lessons learnt have been used to enhance school health and surveillance systems for H1N1, other Influenza-like illnesses and all priority diseases strengthened in the school and nationwide".
