Up to 84000 Americans hospitalized with flu in past three months - CDC

Flu taking toll in California, other states, but having milder impact nationwide, data show Flu Now Officially Widespread Across Iowa

The preliminary figures released Friday don't include estimates of flu-related deaths, which officials said will be provided at a later time, when there is sufficient data to support a more precise estimate.

These estimates are cumulative and will be updated over the course of the annual flu season on Fridays.

It's early, but the current flu season is shaping up to be gentler than last winter's unusually brutal one, US health officials said.

Oil down by 2%, but well on-course for weekly gain
A market-sensitive Fed is reassuring to investors who fear its tightening policies would send the US economy into recession. Futures rose 0.4 percent on Thursday, in their ninth straight daily advance and longest winning streak in nine years.

While states such as California and North Carolina have seen significant numbers of flu-related deaths this season, USA health officials said Friday that the nationwide impact of influenza seems to be milder than last winter.

"If people have not yet had the vaccine, it's not unusual that around this time, after the holidays, we might have a little bit more influenza activity", Murti said. This year, the season is unwrapping slower than those last year. The CDC counts the death of every child from influenza. In the past, the CDC has waited until the end of the season to release estimates of how many people have been affected by flu. Calculations are based on adjusted rates of laboratory-confirmed, influenza-associated hospitalizations collected through a surveillance network that covers approximately 8.5% of the USA population, or about 27 million people.

Quick treatment can save lives, the CDC said.

Simply put: Plan on slippery road conditions. Winter weather advisory in effect
Sunday calls for highs in the mid-30s and overnight lows in the lower 30s with a 50 percent chance of wintry mix then snow. Forecasters expect several inches of snow elsewhere in New Jersey and southeastern Pennsylvania before the storm ends.

If you are sick with flu-like illness, CDC recommends that you stay home for at least 24 hours after your fever is gone except to get medical care or for other necessities.

Startling new numbers show widespread flu infections across the United States.

If you haven't gotten a flu shot, it's not too late.

Instead of pushing the fictional Vegan-Bro diatribe in a new direction, Paul began breaking down his 4-month behavioral plan. January is apparently all about going vegan, but March is where things get interesting for the streamer.

"I think we could be doing a better job to really raise awareness to say kids between six months to five years old are a high-risk group".
