Flu season could cost employers billions of dollars

Flu season could cost employers billions of dollars

Almost 12,000 positive flu reports came in the week before. This year's flu is unusual. Knowing this can change the way the flu spreads. The H3N2 flu strain is infecting the most patients. "What your immune system recognizes is completely different from the what the virus has morphed into at this point".

The flu season is still going strong and there's no end in sight.

Before being out sick for two days this year, Waterhouse said he had not missed school due to illness in about 9 years.

The department last received a report from the Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services that said, as of February 2, 1,044 Christian County residents had contracted the virus, Bilyeu said.

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".

According the Cleveland Daily Banner, Etowah City schools and Rhea County schools will be closed Thursday and Friday, while Marion and Polk County schools will be closed through Monday.

The death toll in future weeks is expected to grow even higher because flu activity is still rising-and the number of deaths follow the flu activity.

Alicia Budd, an epidemiologist in the Influenza Division of the CDC's National Center for Immunization and Respiratory Diseases, provided the latest update on flu activity for clinicians last week, using data based on the most recent report for week 4, ending on January 27.

"Hopefully the B strain we are shifting to is covered in the vaccine", Schulz said.

Flu season is showing no sign of slowing down, and parts of the country may be experiencing a second wave of illness. Last year, only 698 cases of the flu were reported in all.

Free or low-priced flu shots were made available at a dozen locations on Saturday, and health officials say there will be another round of free clinics next weekend.

Collaboration was undertaken by the provost's office and the faculty to support the flu policy so ill students will stay out of the classroom. "The flu vaccine will cover some strains, although it is not as effective for the predominate strain for this season". "I'm still advising people to get the flu shots. we're still giving them here".

Benard and the CDC recommend that, if you are sick with a flu-like illness, you should stay home for at least 24 hours.

Both strains of the flu have similar symptoms: fever, body aches, and fatigue. "The more severe symptoms include a persistent high fever, difficulty breathing or shortness of breath, a rapid heartbeat and significant tiredness or confusion".
