The Centre for Health Protection (CHP) announced yesterday that Hong Kong has officially entered the winter flu season.

Byrne says wash your hands to keep from catching the flu. Although wait times have remained mostly the same, this new area has decreased congestion in the emergency department, said Stefany Snedden, communications co-ordinator with the health-care system.

The 2017-18 flu season in OH and nationally is looking similar to the 2014-15 flu season, which at the time was the most severe flu season in recent years, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

Both hospital and health department officials are still urging residents to get the flu shot, as it could still protect people from certain strain of the flu or make the flu symptoms less severe and shorter if they get the flu.

Symptoms of flu can include fever, cough, sore throat, body aches, headache, chills and fatigue.

Administering a flu vaccination to a patient is Terri Buratczuk, clinical director of the Tri City Health Partnership, a free health clinic in St. Charles that provides services for those who are uninsured or underinsured.

In response to all of those people getting sick, Mercy Health St. Rita's has officially made the decision concerning people that are thinking about stopping by and seeing a loved one - if you're feeling sick with the flu, they're asking you to please stay home.

Rodriguez said this year's strain has a much more H3N2 influenza than H1N1 influenza.

"It's too early to know if the spike we are now experiencing will translate into a peak for the season", she said. "Public health is our first priority, and I strongly encourage community members to get vaccinated and help prevent the spread of the flu".

Additionally confounding issues, numerous healing facilities across the country are battling with a deficiency of sacks that contain liquids that convey drug to treat dried out patients, including influenza patients.

"We ask that people educate themselves regarding when to come to the emergency room and when to stay home", Rohler said. The dominant influenza A strain is H3N2, a subtype of influenza A, viruses which tend to cause more severe disease in the very young and the elderly.

Cases of the flu continue to rise in Monroe County, and one person has died as a result of the virus.
