First flu-related death of the season reported in east Idaho

First flu-related death of the season reported in east Idaho

Two Southeastern Idaho residents have died from the flu. Separation is necessary because people with chronic illnesses are at high risk as any other health problems they have will be exacerbated by the flu virus affecting all of their bodily systems.

"The individual was an adult under 65 years old and had a medical condition that put them at risk for severe illness", said Solano County Deputy Health Officer Dr. Michael Stacey, MD, MPH, in a statement.

Ehresmann noted that this year's flu vaccine appears to be a good match for the viruses circulating.

This season's flu, the H3N2 strain, is known for more severe illness and deaths and is the one that struck in 2014-15, said Paul Throne, a state Department of Health spokesman.

Those with the symptoms are being advised to visit their local pharmacist of GP to get the vaccine.

HTC's goal is to expand that video arcade experience to about 5,000 different arcades worldwide by the end of the year. Round and three-pronged, it's slightly smaller than the head of an ordinary Vive controller, weighing 85 grams.

With this new information in mind, go out and get a flu shot if you haven't already, and be sure that you and your family are taking the necessary steps toward enjoying a healthy winter season. That there's been such a compounding of reports of flu across the board over the past few weeks is what worries most experts.

Monterey County also reported its first flu related death of the season on Tuesday.

Flu activity is increasing in the state, and health officials remind all Minnesotans it's not too late to get their flu shot. During that time, of course, a number of respiratory ailments could affect sinuses nationwide, but if you've got a cough, a headache, and muscle or body aches? There are also flu vaccines made to protect against an additional B virus.

Fresno County Public Health Department said hospitals in the county have been very crowded since the beginning of December. We asked Dr. Augenbraun if someone at the ATM-just before you coughed on the keys or used a subway pole after coughing into their hand-is it possible for the virus to be transmitted? If soap and water are not available, use an alcohol-based hand rub and rub your hands together well.

Anyone in one of these groups or who has regular contact with members of these groups should get a vaccination shot, wash hands frequently, and stay away from others if you have flu symptoms. However, if you are at risk of complications from flu you may need to see a doctor as there are specific anti-viral medicines available which you might need.
