Feeling Sick? Here Are The Most Common Cold And Flu Symptoms

The number of laboratory-confirmed flu cases in DE is skyrocketing and one-week totals are now surpassing the highest single-week totals from last flu season.

World Health Organization estimates 44,000 people die annually of respiratory diseases associated with seasonal flu in Europe out of a total of up to 650,000 global deaths.

Over the past few weeks, the CDC has seen increased influenza-like illness activity, more hospitalizations, and more flu associated deaths in children and adults.

If you still haven't gotten vaccinated during this brutal flu season, you still have time to protect yourself.

In recent studies from Australia and Canada, the flu shot was shown to be as little as 10-percent effective against the flu this year, depending on the age of the patient.

Tragic boy, nine-year-old Coby Simons, is believed to have become the youngest to die from the latest terrifying outbreak.

On Friday, Feb. 2, the CDC gave an update of this year's flu season.

"We kind of had the flawless storm this year". One was identified as 8-year-old Amely Baez of Queens, who died Monday shortly after she was rushed to a hospital with flu symptoms, health officials said.

"Aaron is unique in that he's had a life-long illness that has suppressed his immune system, which complicated the flu when it came into his body", Rev. John Mullaney of Monte Sano Methodist Church said.

In Kansas, influenza has been the direct cause of death in 68 people and a contributing cause of death in 32 people, according to the February 5 KDHE report. On top of that, it is also very important to differentiate the two, which will highly depend on the symptoms that are present any person feels like they are coming down with something. For example, clean/disinfect frequently touched surfaces at home, work or school, especially when someone is ill. What is unusual is the hospitalizations are greater than we've been seeing in the past several years.

There are many ways to prevent yourself from getting the flu; take the seasonal shot, cover your mouth and nose with tissues when sneezing or coughing.

"Other times, what we see is people have what seems like a typical flu illness start to get better and then they end up getting a bacterial infection because their respiratory system is kind of beat up from the flu".

Dr. Gonzalo Bearman chairs the department of infectious diseases at the VCU Medical Center. Common flu symptoms include fever, sore throat, chest discomfort, headache, chills, muscle aches or soreness, and congestion.

"We also recommend that you just stay home, except to go to the doctor, just stay home".

Across the country, the widespread flu activity has caused Tamiflu and vaccine shortages.
