Warren County Public Health Encourages Receiving Flu Shot

North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services' Division of Public Health officials Thursday reported announced the first reported flu-related death of the 2018-19 flu season, which occurred last week and involved an adult in the central part of the state. Talking to APP, General Physician, Dr Mubashir said the department concerned must introduce a proper public health policy to control the spread of seasonal diseases especially influenza. Llamas are unique in that they make a variety of tiny immune system antibodies that can fit into crevices on the surface of an invading virus, the paper said.

Get the shot: Despite claims that you get the flu when you get the shot, this is actually false.

Flu season typically runs from October through May. Almost 400 people died in North Carolina during the last flu season.

The Division of Public Health's surveillance for the 2018-19 flu season began September 30 and will continue through late May. But they increase when temperatures drop and the virus becomes more active.

But although that may not look like a good start, Livar said "the only predictable thing about the flu season is that it's unpredictable".

Getting your flu shot can reduce flu illnesses, doctors' visits, missed work and school due to flu, as well as prevent flu-related hospitalizations.

In mice treated intranasally using an adenovirus vector, the antibodies provided near-universal protection against both influenza A and B viruses. Every year, up to 650,000 deaths are attributed to the flu worldwide, according to the World Health Organization. Early treatment with an antiviral drug can help prevent flu infections from becoming more serious.

Another mistake, McFadden said, is not taking the flu seriously. People at higher risk for flu-related complications include children ages newborn to five, adults over the age of 65, pregnant women and people who have existing medical conditions such as asthma.

Dr Rizwan Uppal said we can protect ourselves from this disease by adopting small methodologies like keeping the hand washing all the time, not to touch anybody having this virus, and wash hands properly in case of shaking hand with the affected person, disposing off the tissues papers properly after sneezing coughing and cleaning our hands especially in gathering.
