And in ME, two schools closed recently due to the flu, according to CBS 18.

Flu cases went down in the beginning of the year, but are on the rise again. This is very unusual because A, which is more unsafe, is usually the most common.

OSDH report shows the number of new and previously reported hospitalizations with testing between September 1, 2019 - February 1, 2020 are 1443.

Contagion® will continue to monitor influenza cases and the 2019-nCoV outbreak. Influenza is one of the annual leading causes of death globally.

State officials won't say much about the latest pediatric flu death, except that the child is under 18 and the death was in southern Wisconsin.

According to McLaughlin, an estimated 8% of the American population contracts influenza every year. This is especially true for the most vulnerable including the very young, older people, and people with chronic health conditions.

More people have been killed this flu season in San Joaquin County that during the same period of time a year ago.

Nationally, public health officials estimate, "so far this season there have been at least 22 million flu illnesses, 210,000 hospitalizations and 12,000 deaths from flu".

If you have a fever, avoid contact with others until it has been gone for 24 hours.

When it comes to prevention, McLaughlin recommends business as usual methods for dealing with upper respiratory tract infections: not standing close to sick people, wiping down surfaces, and staying at home if sick.

"I know it started spreading in China and it's kind of like the flu".

"The flu has spread rapidly through the school, and with so many kids and teachers calling out sick, we believe it is a good idea to take the day to disinfect everything", the school wrote in a Facebook post.

Your dog or cat can carch the flu too, but they won't pass it on to you. "We encourage anyone, even at this stage, to get the influenza vaccine to protect yourself and protect those people who are around you", Haupt said.

Flu season peaks in Feburary, but it can last until May, according to the CDC, so there's still time to get a flu shot.
