"Nurses from the five Scott County school districts call in weekly to report".

The state does not track the number of adult flu deaths, but Pinal County is reporting eight flu deaths, so far.

The NHS said some people were more vulnerable to becoming poorly in the colder months, including those with long-term conditions like diabetes and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease.

"The health department does track school absenteeism due to flu-like symptoms", Ms. Hall said.

This week Parkland employees had to set up an outdoor medical tent to help handle the flow of patient visits...and they urging people to go to community clinics rather than the emergency room. "Just a little bit of extra distance between you and another person can be the difference between you getting sick or you getting someone else sick", said Mitchell. In Houston, area hospitals have filled up, including Texas Children's Hospital, where a quarter of patients are being treated for the flu.

However, since the county confirmed its first flu death, authorities have performed a review of death certificates that goes back to December 10, McDowell said.

Myanmar charges two Reuters reporters under Official Secrets Act
Two Reuters journalists jailed in Myanmar have been formally charged with violating the country's Official Secrets Act. Several non-governmental and journalist organisations have called the arrests an attack on the freedom of the press.

Right now, the state is seeing 5,000 flu cases a week, according to Grey. "We have been at widespread for the past three weeks". Despite the increase, they said they're prepared to fight the flu for all residents in need.

"We have a lot of patients that come in with the typical flu symptoms", Pharmacist Jarron Yee said. There were also 23 influenza outbreaks reported at long-term care facilities for the week ending January 6, more than have been reported for any week of the last two flu seasons. Vaccinating students against the flu is one way to keep them healthy and focused on their academic success.

If that happens, Dr. Werker says this flu season could be similar to a year ago.

Though this year's flu vaccine provides only about 10 percent protection, the department still encourages you to get the shot. Some people get very nauseous and vomit.

The flu may not sound like a big deal, but if you've ever had it, you know it can make you feel miserable. After consultation and request from healthcare and public health partners, ADHS is advising ill people to only seek emergency medical care if they are at high risk for serious complications or are experiencing severe symptoms.
