Number of flu-related deaths in Oklahoma rises to 226

Flu shot

Complications from the flu are estimated to kill between 2,90,000 and 6,50,000 people each year. Two different vaccines are proposed - one for the northern hemisphere winter, one for the south. However, the agency says 26 of those deaths occurred in previous weeks.

And, as health officials predicted, cases of less severe influenza B infections have now eclipsed cases of more severe influenza A infections.

It's also proven particularly deadly to the elderly. Central Oklahoma as a whole, which includes Cleveland County, has also had 33 deaths since flu season began. Of all specimens testing positive for flu last week, 3,090 (49.9%) were influenza A viruses and 3,103 (50.1%) were influenza B viruses.

"At the extreme, with a disrupted supply of food and medicines and without enough survivors to run computer or energy systems, the global economy would collapse".

"We can not say for sure which virus will be circulating", Wenqing Zhang, head of the WHO's global influenza programme, told AFP. "The conditions are right, it could happen tomorrow".

Now that the worst of the current flu season appears to have passed, it's time for healthcare organizations to take a step back and assess whether their current vaccination policies are appropriate and effective. Perhaps the most important piece of advice is to wash hands frequently Most of the restrooms on campus have notices about handwashing and some mention the flu.

"A pandemic is when we see a shift, a really radical change that means the population has no real resistance to it".

Over 1.21 million doses of flu vaccine have been administered to Albertans.

The strain first infected humans in 1997, during an outbreak in Hong Kong. "We don't know. It's really hard to predict flu, but it could be a month and a half", Fry said.

Gupta said the DHHR is monitoring the formulation of next year's vaccine.

"Our vaccines are based on our best prediction of matching what we think are going to be the prevailing circulating strains", Director Dr Nicky Turner told Newshub Nation.

When it comes to preventing a pandemic, universal vaccine aside, Dingwall warned it can be very hard, once the bug is out there. They advised people to treat themselves at home, if possible.
