Flu Cases In Montana 'A Little Below Average' So Far This Season Flu Cases In Montana 'A Little Below Average' So Far This Season

An estimated 6 million to 7 million people have had the flu so far this season.

In most parts of the country, most illnesses right now are being caused by a flu strain that leads to fewer hospitalizations and deaths as the kind of flu that dominated a year ago, according to officials at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Flu activity was high in Alabama, Arizona, Colorado, Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Massachusetts, Mississippi, Nevada, New Jersey, New Mexico, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Texas, Utah and Virginia, according to the CDC.

The 2018-2019 flu season is the first season CDC has reported in-season burden estimates of flu in the U.S.

Last year's flu shot was only 40% effective, because the flu bug keeps mutating.

"Reports of positive influenza cases are dependent on who gets tested for influenza (flu), so the high number of cases in Northern Manitoba may be partially due to more testing being done in the region", said Gesell. People might also get flu by touching a contaminated surface or object that has flu virus on it and then touching their own mouth or nose.

The U.S. saw one of the worst flu outbreaks in almost a decade during the 2017-2018 season, with more than 900,000 cases of hospitalizations and over 80,000 deaths, the CDC estimates.

Conditions such as asthma, heart disease, diabetes, kidney or liver disorders and obesity can make a person more likely to develop complications from the flu.

Dr. Givelichian said another six children in the province have been treated for influenza in intensive-care units. If you haven't gotten a flu shot, it's not too late.

"Elderly, children under the age of five years, pregnant women and those with underlying health conditions are prone to develop serious complications from flu", he added. "This is one of the reasons it is so important to get vaccinated".

"Simple precautions would help prevent the spread of flu", said DAK President and flu expert Dr Nisar-ul-Hassan.

The Doctors Association Kashmir (DAK) has already advised people to take precautions to protect themselves from the flu.
