  • United States flu season poised to be milder than last year's

Meanwhile, four people have died of the flu so far this season in IN, according to the state's department of health.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is estimating some 6,150,000 - 7,280,000 influenza cases in the 2018-2019 flu season as of January 5.

"According to the CDC, we now have a high moderate regional outbreak", said James Frame, an emergency room physician at Wilson N. Jones Regional Medical Center in Sherman.

When the approach, called ARGONet, was applied to flu seasons from September 2014 to May 2017, it made more accurate predictions than the team's earlier high-performing forecasting approach, ARGO, in more than 75 percent of the states studied.

Health officials in both countries say it's not too late to get a flu vaccine to reduce the risk of contracting the virus. During pregnancy, women undergo changes to their immune system, heart and lungs that make them more prone to severe illness from flu throughout their pregnancy and in the two weeks following delivery, the agency warns. While the CDC continuously monitors patient visits for flu-like illness in the USA, this information can lag up to two weeks behind real time.

Flu season is in full swing in the Hudson Valley, with dozens of reported cases now being treated by doctors in the area.

"Swine flu, also known as H1N1 virus is a contagious viral infection of the respiratory tract that spreads from person to person through the inhalation of respiratory droplets".

The 2018-2019 flu season is fully underway, and millions of people are already affected by it.

Until then, Americans will continue to have to keep getting vaccinated every year, which is still better than getting no flu shot at all.

Dr. Givelichian said another six children in the province have been treated for influenza in intensive-care units.

The CDC recommends that people get a flu vaccine by the end of October, though there is still time to get vaccinated.

He said there are another 25,000 vaccines on order.

Doctors maintain the most important thing we can do to protect ourselves against the flu is to get an annual flu shot.
