Flu death total up to 46

Ruby Hospital in Morgantown

But they aren't considered as unsafe to retirement-age people - good news, since most flu deaths and hospitalizations each winter occur in the elderly. "We start to see a lot more influenza B at that time as well". In the intensity and activity levels reported to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), ADH rated both at the highest level. In total, there have been 78 pediatric deaths so far this season, with 10 new deaths reported last week. However, overall hospitalization rates for the season are similar to previous seasons with a current rate of 35.5 per 100,000. "It also reduces the risk of hospitalization and death".

In particular, the flu B strain is hitting children the hardest. According to the agency, approximately 173.3 million doses of the flu vaccine have been administered in the United States this season.

Seasonal flu, though, is a far more active disease in the U.S. All but two of the cases were in people who had traveled to Wuhan, China, the epicenter of the global outbreak.

CDC: Coronavirus test kits shipped across U.S. are faulty
This is the first person under quarantine at JBSA-Lackland who had symptoms and tested positive for coronavirus, the agency said. So far, 175 people on the ship have been infected with the virus - the largest single outbreak cluster outside of China.

It's possible that concern about the coronavirus has led some people with flu symptoms to go to the doctor for testing this year, whereas they might have just stayed home in other years, Brammer said. The death toll range is calculated through the CDC's weekly influenza surveillance data and the range is given to show how impactful the virus is, including an estimate of unreported data. "We expect to see flu uptick again probably later this winter, early spring as it usually does", Dr. Brewer said. "We're looking for broader spread within the community", she said. "It's transmitted through droplets so it's very contagious so you're going to want to be extra careful around people who are sick, especially with fevers".

The first ME resident to be tested for coronavirus infection has tested negative for the disease, which has killed more than 1,300 people and sickened tens of thousands, mostly in China.
