New estimate shows higher global rate of deaths from flu

New estimate shows higher global rate of deaths from flu New estimate shows higher global rate of deaths from flu

Influenza, referred to as the flu, is now prevalent in New York, Health Commissioner Dr. Howard Zucker said this week, meaning that any healthcare workers who have not yet been vaccinated are required to wear masks around patients. Manufacturing, health care, education, assisted living/memory care and hospitality are just a few of the major industries in our community and all of these business sectors have a shared resource, they all rely on employees to operate.

The report states that influenza A (H3N2) viruses are predominant in the Southern Hemisphere, and a preliminary estimate showed the vaccine as only 10 percent effective against that strain.

Delaware's Division of Public Health is reporting the first flu-related death of the season.

This season's flu vaccine includes the same H3N2 vaccine component as last season, and most circulating H3N2 viruses that have been tested in the United States this season are still similar to the H3N2 vaccine virus.

According to the CDC, the flu is now widespread in four states - Georgia, Oklahoma, Louisiana and MA. Overall in the state, there's an average of 11,182 influenza-related hospitalizations each flu season, according to the Department of Health. Investigators calculated the annual number of seasonal influenza-related deaths for those 33 countries. Shots are available through area health care providers and most pharmacies.

Though the new report sheds light on seasonal flu morality burden and the need for greater prevention, Sullivan wrote, "What is less clear is whether our current prevention strategies are adequate to reduce this burden".

"Among the general population, about 39 percent have received the vaccine", said Stokley, co-author of a new CDC report that canvased people by phone and internet in early November. Current vaccines are said to provide better immunization against influenza B and influenza A (H1N1) viruses and offer lower protection against influenza A (H3N2) viruses. One false misconception is that an individual can get flu from the vaccine. The "Flu Express" will enable people to and receive the flu vaccine while waiting in their auto, without having to get out, weather permitting. The most common symptoms of flu include fever, cough, sore throat, runny or stuffy nose, and muscle or body aches.

Health officials recommend that everyone six months and older get vaccinated.

The viruses attacked by the vaccine are chosen far before the flu season because it takes a while to grow the necessary material in the millions of eggs needed.
