Number of flu-related pediatric deaths rises to 20 — CDC

Only Hawaii and the District of Columbia have been spared widespread flu infection so far, according to the CDC. "Whether we will reach that level this year we don't know", Jernigan said.

The flu strain now causing the most infections is H3N2, an influenza A virus that has been linked with increased hospitalizations and death, especially in young children and adults over age 65.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reports the flu is now widespread in 46 states, almost four times as many compared with this time previous year.

While confirmed cases of flu are on the rise in the province, everything seems to be on track for another average Nova Scotian flu season as we begin to enter the 6-8-week period of peak flu activity.

In December, the state announced its first child death from flu for the 2017-18 flu season. Triad hospitals are dealing with a surge of sick patients.

Heartbreaking stories have been circulating in the media this week about children and young adults dying from the flu.

Elsewhere in the country, 91 people have died from the flu this influenza season, including 27 people under the age of 65, according to the CDPC. Balter said while this year's outbreak was early, it's too soon to say what exactly caused the spike in the number of illnesses.

They said all eight counties in the state have seen an increase in flu activity over the past two weeks. "If disease does occur after vaccination, the vaccine can reduce the severity of flu symptoms and prevent both hospitalization and death".

"Even a 30 percent effectiveness rate can save many lives", Dr. Jeffrey Gunzenhauser, Los Angeles County's interim health officer, said at a press conference this week.

While sick, limit contact with others as much as possible to keep from infecting them. Use a tissue or cough or sneeze into the crook of your elbow or arm. Throw the tissue in the trash after you use it.

Frequent and thorough hand-washing with soap and warm water.

Avoid touching your face as flu germs can get into the body through mucus membranes of the nose, mouth and eyes. Germs spread this way. Clean and disinfect frequently touched surfaces at home, work or school, especially when someone is ill.
