MN Department of Health asking for your help to track the flu

Three children's deaths related to the flu were reported in the week ending January 5, bringing the pediatric death toll to 16 for this season, according to the CDC.

Flu season is in full swing in the Hudson Valley, with dozens of reported cases now being treated by doctors in the area.

Agency officials are providing the estimates for the first time during flu season as a way to underscore the risks of serious complications of the respiratory virus and to encourage people to get vaccinated.

Flu has sickened between 6 and 7 million people in the United States so far this season, sending about half of them to the doctor for fever, chills, and other influenza symptoms, according to new estimates released Friday by federal health officials. Almost all of the pediatric illnesses are linked to H1N1. Only child deaths are reported.

The flu sent at least 13 people to the hospital in the last week.

However, the number of people getting flu is down compared to this time of year.

Flu figures only reflect cases in which people sought medical attention and were tested.

Russell said he was unable to find any congenital or pre-existing medical conditions, and her doctors said she was up to date on her immunizations, but it was unclear if the child had received a flu shot.

Women with the flu who weren't hospitalized or were hospitalized but not admitted to the intensive care unit didn't have significantly higher risks for any of the complications studied, the researchers said. "The dominant strain this year is type A, H1N1. They don't have the ability and capacity to generate enough oxygen for the rest of the body to survive the infection", Givelichian said.

"Diagnosed cases are on the decline, a bit earlier in the season than recent years", said Gesell.

Flu season kicks off in earnest in October each year, though patients can still be susceptible to certain strains in September, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
