North Carolina flu deaths climb as season enters its most risky phase

North Carolina flu deaths climb as season enters its most risky phase

Fifty-two flu-related deaths have been reported across California since September 30, according to the latest update from public health officials.

The N.C. Department of Health and Human Services reported the total on Thursday as part of a weekly update.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has issued the weekly influenza report ending January 12, 2019.

The health agency said that 12 of those who have died, or 55 percent, were known to be vaccinated against the flu. He again appealed that if people will report early to Govt Hospitals and are treated adequately, the severity of the illness and mortality due to Influenza A H1N1 can be reduced and prevented.

Although the numbers are low, the CDC says the flu season is still just beginning.

Storm that carpeted Midwest with snow barrels to New England
The snowfall is part of a wall of hazardous weather trekking from the Dakotas, across the Great Lakes states and into New England. No one was injured when United Airlines flight 656 from Phoenix to Chicago rolled off the concrete surface into a grassy area.


The Middlesex London Health unit is urging Londoners to get their flu shot following the first death of the season.

The newspaper reported a spokesperson for the Health Ministry that "influenza cases for this season were influenza types A subtypes H1N1 and H3".

On average, between 60 and 120 deaths are recorded during the flu season.

This influenza has been prominent this year and is known as the H1N1 virus or swine flu which, in previous years, had taken a toll on the country.

Swine flu is one of the viruses included in this year's seasonal influenza vaccine as per recommendations made by the World Health Organisation at the start of last year.
