  • New wave of Swine Flu causes up to four deaths

The most common causes of death were influenza (flu) and pneumonia, tuberculosis, and gastrointestinal infections. That's compared to 90 reported cases this time a year ago.

Flu is most commonly spread through close contact, coughing and sneezing.

Cover your cough and, if you use a tissue, dispose of it in a waste receptacle.

The CDC recommends that everyone 6 months and older get a flu shot; the shot is safe for children older than 6 months, and for pregnant women as well.

By January 1, 2019, at least 11 children had died from flu or flu-related complications, according to one report from Mass Live.

"People can still get the benefit of the vaccine, as the flu season can persist for months, even up until May in some years", she says, adding that the flu shot is the most effective way to protect against getting the flu.

She shared that the most at risk are young children, the elderly, and anyone with immune deficiencies. The flu vaccine can not give persons the flu, but may cause one to develop flu-like symptoms.

They said someone with the cold will usually have gradual symptoms that include a runny or stuffy nose.

It takes two weeks after vaccination to develop full immunity.

According to the CDC website, vaccines are recommended to contain H1N1, H3N2 and Victoria lineage-all different types of influenza.

The HSE has warned that the H1N1 flu strain - also known as swine flu - could potentially become a serious health issue. "If you don't go into the doctor and get tested, we're not going to know about it". During the 2017-18 flu season, some experts estimate that the American economy suffered a loss of $21.39 billion due to the high number of patients.

An early start to the flu season is responsible for the increase, Dr. Jennifer Russell, the province's chief medical officer, told CTV Atlantic.

Besides the loss of life and the associated grief-which is incalculable-flu outbreaks have a real economic impact as well. A total of 179 lab-confirmed flu cases were recorded between Dec. 16 and Dec. 22, 2018, compared to 95 laboratory-confirmed cases reported between Dec. 9 and Dec. 15, 2018.
