Colorado Flu Death Happened In Southern Colorado

Flu Cases Still on the Rise in Maine

Today, Jan. 18, the State of Colorado announced the first (and only) pediatric flu death this season.

Officials in El Paso County say the Colorado patient who died from the flu died in their county. The Department of Public Health encourages El Paso residents to call 2-1-1 to find a flu vaccine provider.

Dr. Ifeoma Achebe, medical officer of health with Alberta Health Services Central Zone said most of the deaths were in the elderly, although some of those who passed away due to the flu were younger people.

They have said they believe that flu season is peaking and will continue to affect people for several more weeks. Three hospitalizations were reported in Brown County, Ohio, and two in Adams County in connection with the flu. Rutherford said this time of year is typically around the middle of flu season, which can go until May. "That's why getting the flu vaccination is the safest and most effective way to prevent the flu for everyone six months and older".

After that, Australia could ask the WTO to adjudicate, with a view to forcing Canada to change its laws or risk trade sanctions. In British Columbia, Australia is upset that standard grocery stores can stock the province's wines, but not imported lines.

Influenza A virus subtype H3N2, which is associated with a more severe influenza season, has been the predominant type both this flu season and last flu season, in Kansas and across the nation.

So why doesn't the flu shot work?

- Wash your hands often with soap and water.

When it comes to medications for the flu, if you're really miserable, prescription antiviral drugs such as oseltamivir (Tamiflu and generic) or zanamivir (Relenza) may shorten the illness by a day or so-which may be of modest benefit to an otherwise healthy person, Pavia says.

- While sick, limit contact with others as much as possible to keep from infecting them.

Influenza is an infection of the nose, throat and lungs caused by a virus which can be spread by touching objects that have been coughed or sneezed on by someone who has the virus.
