The Cuyahoga County Public Health Collaborative reported the totals Thursday in its influenza report for the week of January 7-13.

Dukes says almost 15-hundred people have been hospitalized since flu season began.

Oklahoma City-County Health Department (OCCHD) epidemiologists are cautioning residents to take every preventative step available now in the midst of rising numbers of hospitalizations and deaths due to influenza across the state and nation.

Flu-associated hospitalizations in Cuyahoga County are at 794, which is a decrease from last season, the collaborative reported.

According to the report, there were 2,070 confirmed flu cases reported last week throughout the county, down about 1,000 from a revised tally of 3,046 two weeks ago.

Officials said 35 of those who died were over 65 years old, and 10 were between 50 and 64 years old.

Within the last week, three people have died from the flu.

Symptoms of the flu include fever, headache, cough, runny or stuffy nose, fatigue and muscle aches.

Doctors recommend that everyone over the age of 6 months get the flu vaccine.

Pour said the flu virus constantly changes and that it is not too late to get vaccinated.

The Health Department said an outbreak is when two or more influenza-like illnesses occur in the same facility.
