1st flu-related child death reported in New Jersey

Those in at-risk groups include people aged 65 and old, pregnant women and people with chronic diseases.

"While most children do well with the flu, if they are home [recovering] for three or four days, if the signs of symptoms progress, it is important to seek urgent care", Shahab said.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says 80,000 people died nationally, including 180 children, during last year's flu season. "This year's vaccine is a good match for circulating strains and it is not too late to get the vaccine".

The hospital has not set a date when they anticipate to lift the restriction, but said that they will continue monitoring news about the flu season and then assess whether it will be safe to welcome children visitors back.

Flu cases last week fell to 257 from 369 the previous week.

During the last week of December, Marion County emergency room visits related to influenza-like illness was at 2.70% - this is considered high.

"So we're probably on track to coming up to more of our peak activity in the next couple of weeks or so".

And, Sherlock says, "It's not too late to get a flu shot".

From Dec. 23 to 29, 2019, the province reported 64 new influenza cases, including one death and one ICU admission.

"What I can tell you is that the people who have been hospitalized and the deaths that were associated with the flu this year are people who have not been immunized, a majority of them have not been immunized", said Dr. Jennifer Russell, chief medical officer of health for New Brunswick. Vaccines protect against multiple flu strains.

Traditionally, the H1N1 component is better at halting the spread of that strain of the virus, compared to H3N2, which has a greater propensity to genetically mutate, often in the manufacturing process.

"While most people will get better themselves from flu, anyone who is concerned about their condition should telephone their GP or an out of hours medical service so they can arrange to be treated in a way that does not put others at risk".
