18-month-old in Lucas County dies from flu

18-month-old in Lucas County dies from flu

The Ohio Department of Health has released that just under 4,000 cases of flu related hospitalizations have been reported in Ohio since October.

The majority of the confirmed cases of the flu were between the ages of 18 and 49.

Because people can be contagious for up to a week after the onset of symptoms, they are asked not to visit anyone in the hospital or accompany someone to appointments until they are symptom free.

Doing so is "very important", Tam said, "as we move ahead to future years of vaccine program planning and recommendations".

Physicians say that the best ways to get over the flu and keep it from spreading are to wash your hands often, keep hydrated, and cover your cough.

Wash. deputy shot during foot pursuit dies
That road and others - 176th Street East, 38th Avenue East and Canyon Road East - were closed to form a perimeter for the search. Pierce County Sheriff's Department spokesman Ed Troyer identified the deputy as 34-year-old Daniel McCartney, of Yelm.

Of course, officials say it's never too late to get a flu shot. But the symptoms will be milder and probably have a shorter duration. It takes two weeks for the flu vaccine to take effect in the body's system. Vaccination is offered at a variety of pharmacies as well as health care providers and clinics. The Denton County Public Health department offers low-priced immunizations to those who qualify. "Last year, Mohave County experienced a similar spike in activity as this same time, and it did end up being our peak activity".

As of December 30, 1,050 "influenza-associated" hospitalizations had been reported, with 93 cases requiring admission to intensive care. No public schools had been closed because of increased influenza-like illness.

The 2017-18 flu season in OH and nationally is looking similar to what was seen during the 2014-15 flu season which at the time was the most severe flu season in recent years, according to the (CDC).

Flu symptoms can come on suddenly with a fever, cough, sore throat, runny nose, headache and fatigue, though not everyone with the flu runs a fever, Rohler noted. People need to be allowed to stay home when they're sick, and they need to be allowed to stay home to care for their young children when they are sick.

It's not clear yet how effective this year's flu vaccine will be, as federal data on that won't be available till February. However, some have chronic health problems and the flu can lead to complications ranging from moderate to life-threatening.
