FLU DEATHS: 12 more reported in North Carolina, 34 more in South Carolina

Hospital lifts visitation restrictions

"Although, H1N1 is also circulating", said Cynthia Buckman, a Registered Nurse and Manager of Employee Health at Florida Hospital Memorial Medical Center. Quick compared this to the Spanish flu, which killed 100 million people in 1918. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the entire United States, except for Hawaii and OR, have experienced widespread cases. But he noted the late flu season is unpredictable, depending on which viruses are circulating.

Despite the good ILI news, Anne Schuchat, MD, acting director of the CDC, said yesterday that more cases can be expected this season.

Haselow said influenza B has now surpassed influenza A as the most common type in the state. "Even though It looks like all signs point to decreasing influenza activity, we're still in what we normally think of as flu season".

Carteret Health Care announced Thursday it has lifted visitation restrictions to the hospital, effective immediately, as the number of flu cases reported across the state declines.

Unlike the hundreds of war memorials throughout New Zealand, there are few memorials that acknowledge the Spanish Flu - but it was one of the most traumatic experiences our young country has ever faced.

It's estimated around 500 Kiwis die of flu-related causes each winter, but the officially recorded number is only a fraction of that figure. "And children are being affected more than adults".

Flu is a contagious, viral illness that causes mild to severe symptoms that can sometimes lead to death.

Flu pandemics happen once in a generation, professor Robert Dingwall, another flu expert, told The Sun Online. Past vaccines have also been less effective against H3N2, and Dr. Gottlieb stated that the FDA is trying to better understand why effectiveness tends to be lower against this strain.

The vast majority of hospitalizations (80.2%) were associated with influenza A virus.

Do not cough or sneeze into your hands.

The medical community promotes getting a flu shot, which is the proven best way to avoid getting the flu or at least decrease the severity of the illness.
