Flu cases - and deaths - continue rising in Pennsylvania

Flu cases - and deaths - continue rising in Pennsylvania

At least 30 children have been killed by the flu this season, federal health officials said.

DHEC does not release county-by-county figures, so it's unclear if Chesterfield has had any flu deaths.

If you or your child is sick with flu-like illness, contact your healthcare provider as soon as possible and follow their guidance on treatment. We encourage parents and employees to take extra precautions given the severity of the year's flu season thus far.

"Like the rest of the country, Gasconade County has also been hit hard during this flu season", said Greg Lara, administrator of the county health agency.

Influenza (also known as flu) is a contagious respiratory illness caused by influenza viruses that infect the nose, throat, and lungs. Make sure your child gets plenty of rest and drinks enough fluids.

The cost to get a flu shot at most pharmacies and the health department is $20.

Myanmar Says Richardson Asked to Step Down From Advisory Panel
Forsyth recently visited the Kutupalong refugee camp in Bangladesh's Cox Bazar. "This moment is not safe to go back", he said. They point to the case of Richardson, whose appointment has backfired by fuelling worldwide criticism of the state counsellor.

Some people are at higher risk for complications from the flu, especially infants and young children, older adults, pregnant women, and anyone with a chronic medical condition, such as asthma, diabetes or heart disease.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has advised that influenza (flu) activity in the USA has increased significantly over recent weeks with influenza A (H3N2) viruses predominating so far this season. The flu vaccine is recommended for everyone over the age of 6 months. The flu vaccine is safe and helps protect children from flu.

Officials with Reading Hospital's emergency department said that they were monitoring their patient numbers closely to determine whether they needed to open a special clinic just for flu patients. "Antiviral medications should be started early to have their best chance of helping". If soap and water are not available, use an alcohol-based hand rub.

"Adenovirus is a very common virus", said Dr. If you have more than one bathroom, have the sick person use one and well people use the other.

Anyone whose symptoms improve but return with fever or a worsened cough should get help right away.
