Default flu season is the worst in nearly a decade — and it's not getting better

Again to many have died from the Flu this year so wash them hands often. If you feel a temp or other signs go to the Hospital and follow what the doctors tell you to do!

This flu season is the worst in nearly a decade — and it's not getting better

Flu is now sickening and hospitalizing Americans at rates not seen in nearly a decade, and the season is still getting worse, federal health officials said Friday.

In the latest update, the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reported 10 new child deaths and the highest flu hospitalization rate seen since the agency started keeping comparable records in 2010. It also reported the highest rate of flu-like illnesses since the flu pandemic of 2009.

“We don’t know if we have hit the peak yet," said Anne Schuchat, acting CDC director. "We could potentially see several more weeks of increased flu activity.”

And while deaths among children — now at 63 kids — and adults have not been extremely high, it is possible they could increase in line with hospitalization rates, she said.

Not quite but each year our Influenza Type anti serum flu shot is less capable of preventing as it was suppose to do.

I believe I read where it is now at 16% effectiveness. Seems the base virus is re-shaping itself.
