  • Maine flu season nearing peak, with 876 new cases, 5 more deaths

Numerous measurements are still going up. but we're at week ten and some seasons go to 20 weeks, I would say the timing is not particularly unusual.

All were at higher risk because of advanced age and/or underlying health issues. If 2 or more strains of the flu interact within a cell, the RNA pieces from each strain mix, creating a new strain of the flu with genetic makeup from each parental strain, according to the authors.

UCSB Student Health Services Executive Director Dr. Mary Ferris commented and provided data on this year's flu season. "We can't say if we've reached the peak", said Rick Dawson of the Benton-Franklin Health District.

On the other hand, flu seasons where H3N2 is the dominant strain are often more deadly.

"We provide masks to people in the lobby, both to visitors and the patients to try to decrease the amount of exposure from droplets", said Dr. Weeks.

Still, the CDC is urging people to get the vaccine, stating that even though the flu shot is not 100 percent effective, it can still lessen the chance that someone catches it by 10% to 60%.

"This year's flu season is the worst our country has seen in almost 10 years, and our area has not been spared", said Lenowisco Health District Director Dr. Eleanor Sue Cantrell.

Susan Burchill, a spokeswoman with Wesley Healthcare, 550 N. Hillside, confirmed that the hospital has had two pediatric deaths from the flu. All children under the age of 18 can also receive the flu vaccine for free.

But only some pharmacies have run out of flu shots, and the shots are still available at regional health departments and private providers, Department of Public Health officials said Monday.

It's also believed the carrier of the flu virus can infect other people who are at least 6 feet away, according to CDC.

"Over in Australia, the statistics were very low, but here it's been about 30 to 33 percent chance you might get the flu".

"We think that two strains need to have similar features in their genome to reassort and make a new virus", study author, Jacco Boon, PhD said in a press release.

The influenza virus spreads when people with a flu cough, sneeze or talk to others when they are sick. Those who are sick with the flu are generally contagious beginning one day before their symptoms begin and for approximately one week after their symptoms began.
