Around 20,000 people with flu and other respiratory viruses swamped GP surgeries last week and while flu rates have risen they may have peaked, the HSE said.

According to the City of Houston Health Department, two women in their 60's have died.

Ten people have died of flu-related deaths in San Luis Obispo County since December 10, according to Ann McDowell, an epidemiologist with the SLO County Public Health Department.

People in high-risk groups who show flu symptoms should see a health care provider early in the illness, health officials said.

"The vaccine is the best defence we have against the spread of flu and it isn't too late to get vaccinated". Texas is second only to Arkansas in the percentage of doctor visits linked to the flu.

On Monday January 15, anyone showing flu symptoms, or under the age of 12 years will have visitor limitations at St. Peter's. There have been over 10,000 lab-confirmed cases this season, according to county data.

Nearly 2,000 people have been hospitalised by flu this winter, the report also revealed, and one in four of those cases were caused by deadly Aussie flu. Eyewitness News reached out to the experts about the influenza outbreak. However, Grey said there was a "slight mutation" since those vaccines were developed.

"H3 is more likely to lead to hospitalization or even death", Berg said.

"I just want to provide some reassurance that what we're seeing with respect to influenza, at least in Canada, is not unusual, in general".

Protection against both the Aussie strain and Yamagata, which was first identified in Japan, are included in the flu jab offered free to all two and three-year-olds by Global Positioning System and by schools for children from reception to year four.

Take steps to avoid infection, such as washing your hands frequently and cooking meats thoroughly.

"If you're eligible, please make getting the vaccination a priority and book an appointment with your GP practice or health board as soon as possible". "The vaccine is it well matched for it, so unfortunately I think the vaccine is good to get it better than nothing so it is probably not going to be as effective as we had hoped", said Dr. Cynthia Snider, an infectious disease with Cone Health. "In worst case scenarios, it can put you in the hospital".
