Flu death toll in DE increases to 28, ties record high

New findings support “wider use of influenza vaccination in heart failure patients.”

Although new cases of flu are on the decline, the level remains above the peak of some previous flu seasons.

"We have seen the numbers go up and down in the past", Deti said.

Brown says because this flu season has been particularly bad, it may help spur changes and developments in making better flu vaccines.

"This number represents the number of individuals who had influenza specifically listed on their death certificate", the report warns, adding the number of flu-related deaths is likely higher since "many influenza-associated deaths are due to secondary infections". The latest data indicates 2,256 reported cases this season.

Since early January, cases of influenza A have been declining, while cases of influenza B have been rising, which often happens in the tail end of the flu season, according to the Centers for Disease Control.

Public health officials remind the public that there are several weeks remaining in the flu season, and the number of hospitalizations and deaths will continue to increase.

Emma Watson's Giant 'Time's Up' Tattoo Has A Glaring Error

Four of the five deaths were recent, while one occurred during the first week in February. As of March 3, Pennsylvania had recorded 169 flu-related deaths in the 2017-2018 flu season, including five children.

Locally, officials haven't found this flu season to be much different from past flu seasons.

Dr. Richard Wallace at UT Health North Campus Tyler said there's still a possibility of getting the flu. RSV causes bad cold-like symptoms and can be serious for babies.

CDC officials are still recommending that unvaccinated people get the flu shot before the season's end.

It appears the flu season peaked a couple weeks ago in MI.
