IN reports its first flu-related death of the season

Your mom was right Wash your hands and cover your mouth when sneezing helps stop the spread of disease

So far, the 2018-19 flu season is keeping pace with 2017-18, which was one of the worst in years in Arizona, with the state's 35,570 reported cases more than three times the average of the preceding three seasons.

The News & Observer in Raleigh reported Thursday that the illness claimed the life of an adult in the central part of the state.

"We are seeing some similar case numbers, maybe even a little bit of an increase from what we saw from the previous year", said Eugene Livar, interim chief of the Bureau of Epidemiology and Disease Control at the health department.

Dr. Belcher says people should also know the difference between the flu and a common cold. However, the flu vaccine can be administered at any time during the season, which typically runs from October through May.

The Division of Public Health's surveillance for the 2018-19 flu season began September 30 and will continue through late May.

It claimed that Kavanaugh and another man had raped her repeatedly in the back seat of a vehicle after offering her a ride home. I don't know if this is a crime (Grassley seems to think so) but I hope she faces some serious consequences for this.

For decades, researchers have been trying to find a universal vaccine for the flu - which is responsible for tens of thousands of deaths in the United States alone. Instead, what they did was to collect antibodies from llamas with the flu, which they used to produce artificial antibodies that were then inserted into mice via a nasal spray. Traditionally it protects against 3 types of influenza: Influenza A, (H1N1), influenza A (H3N2) and influenza B. The vaccine is intended for most adults, as well as children six months of age and older.

"By the way, I understand is that the flu virus circulating this year is a little nastier than usual, makes people a little bit sicker". The school kids were mostly suffering from influenza these days and their parents should take it seriously and ensure their proper treatment before sending them to school to avoid spread of this viral infection which can really catch the other kids having less immunity, he said.

It's No Shave November, but it's also the very beginning of flu season and healthcare officials are asking everyone to beat the rush and get their flu shot now. "Even, pregnant women can take this vaccination and it is totally safe", he observed.

Despite the hope that this country may duplicate Australia's flu season, Murti said Canadians shouldn't assume there's no point in getting vaccinated.
