More than 200 have now died due to flu in Oklahoma

"There were a significant number of cases this year, and outbreaks, and so we're still managing those", said Dr. Jason Cabaj, medical officer of health for the Calgary zone of Alberta Health Services.

The state Department of Public Health's weekly flu update released today shows that hospital and outpatient visits for the flu have decreased over the lasts several weeks.

The uncommonly harsh flu season claimed another seven lives in CT in recent days, but the worst of the outbreak appears to be over, health officials announced Thursday.

The department reports the greatest number of flu-related deaths, 160, is among people aged 65 or older.

According to this week's update, flu activity has peaked in CT but remains high and widespread.

Tulsa County had 42 deaths and 1,098 hospitalizations as of Tuesday, the state health department said.

The number of patients with flu symptoms seeking treatment at Patient First in Midlothian has also declined over the past two weeks, to numbers more typical for this time of year, says staff physician Elizabeth Jenkins.

But owner Roman Abramovich is ready to keep his head coach as long as he curbs the moaning about transfers. These days Roman wants to give his managers every opportunity. "People are growing tired of it all".

There are still several weeks remaining in the flu season.

Cape Fear Valley Medical Center and Southeastern Regional Hospital restricted visitors in late January because of the flu.

The number of patients showing up at CT emergency rooms has dropped for the fourth week in a row.

"This year's flu has been an especially severe strain, and we are urging all area residents who have not had a flu vaccine to get one", she said.

The data and analytics company stated that the traditional egg-based approach to the manufacture of commercial flu vaccines commonly induces a suboptimal immune response.

Flu season did not hit its peak in Georgetown County until the following week - February 4-10 - when 505 new cases were diagnosed. Experts also say you should not go to work or school if you have a fever.
