Ohio Department of Health reports first child flu death of season

There have been 3,854 flu hospitalizations reported in Ohio.

The H3N2 virus, a.k.a. influenza A, is the main strain making people sick, and it's tough to fight. Earlier Wednesday, state health officials said a 4-year-old boy from Montgomery County died.

Forty-six states now have widespread flu activity.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said the 2017-2018 flu season in OH is comparative to that in 2014-15, which was the most severe flu season in recent years.

Dr. Michael de Lota, family medicine physician at ARC Kyle Plum Creek, said he believed the spike in cases stems from fewer people getting the flu vaccine.

- If you do get the flu, go to the doctor for antiviral treatment to help reduce symptom duration. "But time is short and we hope you get vaccinated soon, if you haven't".

Regardless of current gripes or criticism you might hear regarding the effectiveness of the flu vaccine, get a shot anyway.

The Center for Disease Control and Prevention says flu activity in the USA increased sharply during the first week of January, and is now categorized as widespread in 46 states. The South has been suffering with flu for several weeks, and it may have peaked there, she said. H3N2-dominant flu seasons are associated with more severe illness, especially among children and older adults.

Those with the flu should stay home for at least 24 hours after your fever is gone except to get medical care or for other necessities.

People exhibiting symptoms of the flu are encouraged to first call or visit their primary care providers or urgent care clinics.

Gratton said that the health unit's first confirmed case of flu was the B strain, which she said is typically more common at the end of the season.

Influenza symptoms include fever, cough, muscle aches, sore throat, chills, and a headache.

The antiviral medications work best when started within two days of the onset of symptoms; even after two days, these medications can be beneficial.

He said he recommends the three C's for prevention: Cover your cough, clean your hands and contain it - meaning people should stay home when they are sick.
