Kentucky flu deaths, active cases continue to climb

Most seniors were first exposed to H1N1 viruses and their bodies seem to handle them better, but H3N2 viruses - which didn't spread broadly in the United States until the late 1960s - seem to be harder for their bodies to deal with.

Horry County also saw modest drop in its number of flu cases.

Flu deaths are reported as flu/pneumonia, she said, so it's unknown how numerous eight deaths involved both.

There have been 4,916 confirmed flu cases reported in El Paso, approximately ten times the number of cases seen at this time past year.

Health reports state that nearly all of the patients who died from the virus were over the age of 50. It was the only county in the Palmetto State last week to have more than 2,000 cases diagnosed.

One child between the ages of 0 and 4 has died, and five people between the ages of 5 and 24 have died.

DHEC says 22 people died from the flu this week alone, down from the more than 40 people who died from the virus last week. "This is above the epidemic threshold for the week ending January 20, 2018".

The flu deaths since the flu season began October 1, 2017 now total 24. The trailer, called Carolinas MED-1, has 14 beds and will sit outside the hospital's main emergency room for 30 days to alleviate wait times and bed shortages. It still provides some protection, it can lessen the illness's severity, keep people out of the hospital, and save lives. No other local IN county has five or more flu-related deaths. "Typically, it's three weeks that people come in with the flu and then it settles in". DHEC would not specify the county where the child died.

Other precautions include washing your hands frequently, covering your coughs and sneezes, avoiding sick people and staying home if you're not feeling well.

Nationally, this flu season arrived stronger than projected, according to federal health officials.

While the flu has shown some signs of leveling off in Wichita County, the elementary school at Christ Academy closed Friday after its student and teacher absences were too high due to illness.
