During the last five flu seasons, only one influenza-related death occurred among children in Idaho, according to the Idaho Department of Health and Welfare.

Visits to health care providers for the flu declined for the week ending January 4, but the CDC says it is unclear whether this means the flu season has peaked or whether holidays prevented people from seeing a doctor.

She says early indications in B.C. point to a less severe flu season.

Spear says just in case your kids bring home the flu, it's best to have a plan B to keep it there.

Local prosecutor Laure Beccuau said her department was working closely with the national anti-terrorism unit on the investigation. The assailant fled to the L'Hay-les-Roses commune, where he was confronted by police outside a Carrefour supermarket.

"We are now in peak flu season and flu season doesn't end until the end of spring, so there's plenty of time to get the flu shot, ' she said". "This is likely due to the predominance of influenza B/Victoria and influenza A (H1N1) pdm09 viruses, which are more likely to affect children and younger adults than the elderly". "So we're already seeing plenty of flu activity in MA".

U.C. Health Urgent Care says out of 20 recent patients they've seen seven had the flu, majority Type B. It's actually higher this week than it was any week last season.

"We are now in the height of flu season and we likely are not at the peak yet - meaning, we will likely see the number of flu cases continue to rise", Richards said. It was really like two flu seasons back-to-back, Madoff said. "So it is very likely that we will be seeing many more cases of the flu into March and maybe April".

"And on an individual level you really can't tell if you've got Influenza A or Influenza B - they can both make you miserable and both can make you quite sick". "The flu virus can survive on hard surfaces for 24 hours - think about how many people touch grocery carts or door knobs in that period of time".
