The Department for Public Health reported Friday that flu activity in Kentucky is widespread for the tenth week in a row.

CDC offiicals said there is a 90 percent chance that the flu season has peaked, but to still expect high flu activity for the next few weeks.

About 60 percent of the flu virus samples tested last week were of the troublesome strain.

In total, there has been 58 flu-related deaths in Nebraska this season. "However the vaccine is more effective against that strain this year, which I think explains why we're seeing less deaths and less overall flu activity comparatively", says Howard.

The highest hospitalization rate last week occurred among adults 65 and older, at 107.7 per 100,000 population. "That was the virus that was causing so much trouble previous year".

"Although it's not flawless, it still prevents many, many infections, and even if you should get influenza despite having received the vaccine, it tends to make a less severe infection".

This season 44 people in Kentucky have died of flu-related complications. If you get these symptoms, get medical advice.
