The flu epidemic is suspected of causing two more deaths including a 5-year-old from NY and a 24-year-old from Las Vegas.

Flu A can include H3N2, and it's the strain responsible for more hospital visits and deaths this season.

The Centers for Disease Control reports this year, there have been 63 pediatric deaths linked to the flu nation-wide.

The CDC says we are only in week 11 of the flu and usually lasts 20 weeks, and the worst could still be yet to come, "Flu is incredibly hard to predict and we don't know if we've hit the peak yet.so we could potentially see several more weeks of increased flu activity". "And we still have a few more months of flu activity".

"We were hoping to have better news", said Dr. Schuchat.

In Suffolk, there have been over 3,700 cases of the flu this season, with 782 new cases reported last week.

Mihalik recommended avoiding large gatherings where flu can spread easily.

A viruses, often linked to more serious flu illness, continue to dominate. She says that since we are all involved in a Christian community, we need to think about the well-being of others.

'Neal said it was hard to predict how effective the flu shot is while the season is occurring but said even if it isn't flawless, it will still provide protection from other strains of the flu and could moderate some of the symptoms of a strain that isn't completely prevented. There are spot shortages of flu-fighting medications, both in Georgia and nationally. It provided more than 1,000 free flu shots at its October clinic.

The flu season is still going strong and there's no end in sight. This strain is associated with more severe illnesses in the elderly and young children.

Weekly monitoring of the number of flu cases in all facilities is continuing. Some patients die after lengthy hospitalizations.

"We're still characterizing this year's virus", Schuchat said.

Then the researchers took a closer look at the clinical picture of the babies that succumbed to flu and noted that in babies, the course of the infection to death is very quick. "It's not a hugely new strain".

There are four types of influenza viruses: A, B, C and D. Human influenza A and B viruses cause seasonal epidemics of disease nearly every winter in the United States.

"We were kind of due for an epidemic", Christmann said. "We have yet to plateau". "This season, we are on track to break some records".

The number was even higher in Texas, with 14 percent of the deaths during that period being flu-related.

"It is not peaking now and it should have", he said, which could mean several weeks of elevated activity. Bo Sherwood, medical director for University Prompt Cares.
