The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention say the flu is widespread in 30 states. Texas Health and Human Services indicates the Greater Houston area isn't among the areas being hit hardest.

A Washington state child under the age of five died from flu-related complications according to the Tacoma Pierce Health Department, and doctors say it's the same strain of virus that led to the death of a child in King County last week. Two women in northern Idaho, both over the age of 70 years, died from flu-related causes.

The Ministry of Health advised of the increase in deaths in its weekly flu update yesterday, as it also again called on the population to access thousands of vaccines offered for free at district health centres. She says the most prevalent strains this year are Influenza B and the H1N1 virus.

Symptoms include fever, cough, sore throat and body aches.

If you want a flu shot, you can get one from your doctor, many pharmacies or through your local health department. Apart from the B/Victoria strains of influenza viruses, the H1N1 are the most common strains infecting the US residents in this current season.

Flu activity appears to be getting worse in Oregon.

"So it is important do do everything you can to ensure you're not passing along the flu virus to them". Many people in the UAE suffer from this cold and the flu between October and May each year because the virus spreads very quickly.

Good hand-hygiene can also prevent the spread of the flu.

However during this winter the CDC has said that there is a chance of 40% that the flu is going to reach its peak in the month of December on the basis of the activity thus far.
