Number of flu-related deaths in Oklahoma rises to 226

The number of confirmed flu cases in NY continued to sharply decline for a second consecutive week, state officials announced Thursday.

Out of the 114 pediatric flu deaths in the United States this season, there were two flu-related deaths in West Virginia.

According to the March 9 report, the number of hospitalizations for laboratory-confirmed cases of flu per 1,000 licensed dropped almost 20 to 30.39.

As of March 3, flu remained geographically widespread in 34 states, down from 45 the week before, and was causing high levels of illness in 21 states, down from 32, CDC said.

This year's flu season is shaping up to be one of the worst seen in many years.

Kentucky saw an uptick in reported flu-related deaths during week nine of this year's flu season, despite the number of flu cases decreasing both state-wide and nationally.

Public health officials warn that although flu activity is decreasing overall, the flu season is expected to continue through mid-April or later.

These technologies are capable of producing vaccines that are better created to deal with circulating strains of influenza virus, according to GlobalData.

Among children aged 6 months through 8 years old, however, the vaccine's effectiveness is 59 percent, the agency reported.

"We've wound down our National Public Health capacity, we've got great people say in the Ministry of Health, we just don't have enough of them, and we've also fragmented our activities and we saw that with the Havelock North response".

The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has more about the flu. "The H3N2 strain is much more severe than the B strain, especially in seniors". Gupta is recommending people get vaccinated if they haven't done so already.

At the end of January, the Naval Center Camp Lejeune reported an influx of patients in their emergency room with flu-like symptoms, causing extremely long lines.
