  • CDC says flu cases are on the rise. What are the costs

"The season is really starting to pick up", said Lynnette Brammer, the lead of CDC's domestic influenza surveillance team.

Question: Are we seeing a more flu activity here in MI?

In 1918, H1N1 flu killed 50 million people around the world. That's more than double the number of states from the previous week.

The report said most colds don't result in more serious health problems that lead to hospital visits.

In addition, North Dakota has reported three flu-related deaths in the most recent flu season. When that strain predominated, almost 1 million Americans were hospitalized and 80,000 died.

According to the state health department, eight people have died so far this season from the flu. "For it to just take her life, nothing prepares you for how fast it moves", said Allison's mother Crystal White Shield.

"But as we see a jump in activity as we did this week, we would expect an increase in hospitalizations, and unfortunately, probably an increase in mortality", Brammer said. The length of a flu season varies, but the average duration of a flu season for the last five seasons has been 16 weeks, with a range of 11 to 20 weeks.

Per multiple sources, former Colts and Lions coach Jim Caldwell has interviewed for the coaching vacancy in Green Bay . His most recent head coaching duties came with the Detroit Lions from 2014-17, leading the team to the playoffs twice.

Allison had mild asthma, but about half the children who die from the flu were healthy before flu hit, according to the CDC.

Minnesota's 2017-18 flu season peaked at more than 650 hospitalizations.

"It's miserable between feeling just rundown, frightful headaches, and the sweats", said Stephen Canter, a father who is anxious about the flu.

Dr Kelleher urged people to get the flu vaccine if they have not done so already and to avoid sending children to school or going to work if you have symptoms of the flu. "It's especially recommended for elderly people over the age of 65 and for anybody else who has any comorbidity or health condition that would make them more vulnerable", says Rock.

To help promote personal health and wellness, get an annual flu vaccine.

Question: We know it's important to get the flu shot.

If you have a flu-like sickness, try to stay at home for at least 24 hours after your fever is gone. Influenza typically peaks between December and February, and there's no accurate way to call the top, she said. The bad news is that there's a long way to go.
