A Wesley Medical Center spokesperson confirmed that the two children died.

World Health Organization estimates 44,000 people die annually of respiratory diseases associated with seasonal flu in Europe out of a total of up to 650,000 global deaths. That compares to 178 cases past year during the same time period, officials said.

"We have given about the same number of flu shots this year as last year", says Wheeler. Malone was stricken with the flu during the funeral and died quickly died. But health officials say they can not accurately assess the effectiveness of the vaccine for at least another couple of weeks.

His pre-existing condition weakened his immune system, making his flu diagnosis far more severe and caused him to suffer brain damage.

Since October 1, 2017, 14,676 laboratory-confirmed influenza-associated hospitalizations have been reported through the Influenza Hospitalization Network.

Jefferson County, which ADPH classified as a distinct district, has reported 20 deaths under investigation. The very young and the elderly are particularly at risk for the severe symptoms that the flu can cause.

This flu season has seen elevated activity across the country over the past few weeks, with some of the highest hospitalization rates ever recorded according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

"If you're exposed to germs throughout the day, and if your body is not recharged, you're more likely to get sick", said Chris Brantner, a certified sleep coach.




"We also recommend that you just stay home, except to go to the doctor, just stay home".

The Arkansas Department of Health is now reporting 122 flu-related death in the state, the worst in 17 years.

He tested positive for influenza B, a less common strain of the flu.

State and local infectious disease experts say this flu season has been a tough one. At Wesley, "pediatric" includes newborns to age 18.

Dr. Marc Itskowitz, an internal medicine physician with Allegheny Health Network, said the flu typically migrates from the Southern Hemisphere to the Northern Hemisphere. We can't say if we've reached the peak. "There's not been any substantial decline".

More students were vaccinated this year, thanks to $12,000 allocated from the Student Affairs' Student Impact Fund. "It's kind of one of those things you never expect for the flu to be this huge of a deal, until it happens to somebody that you know".

Andrew Yawn and Kym Klass contributed to this report.

How does the flu spread? H2N3, aka "Hong Kong flu", is the most resistant flu virus and it can live for up to 24-48 hours on plastic and metal surfaces and can easily prone to secondary complications. They don't even have rooms for our children. They are also asking those who are sick to wear a mask before entering their buildings.
