In The Event Of A Shutdown … How It Might Affect Your Health

In The Event Of A Shutdown … How It Might Affect Your Health

As of last week, the number of flu cases across the state had risen by 54 percent and new cases were diagnosed in each county in NY. The week of January 7, that fell to 161 tests, with 28 percent positive.

Dr. Milton, M.D., MPH, professor of environmental health in the University of Maryland School of Public Health and lead researcher of this study said, "We found that flu cases contaminated the air around them with the infectious virus just by breathing, without coughing or sneezing". California is one of more than 20 states where flu activity has been classified as "high". However, for those who do not like needles or may not keep in mind to get their shots, a new development is in the works.

We've heard reports of at least a dozen legislators coming down with influenza - which has killed an estimated two dozen people in the Palmetto State over the past few months (including nine people last week). This season, the virus has claimed the lives of two OH children, a 1-year-old boy in Lucas County and a 4-year-old boy in Montgomery County, according to the Department of Health.

Other vulnerable people include those with weakened immune systems, and the very old and the very young. Information about vaccination clinics may also be available from the health department. "Many Influenza A strains originate in other animals, mutate and infect humans". I suggest this only because anti-vaxxers are still continuing to promote this remarkable myth; 80% of people who have come down with the flu this year did not get vaccinated.

Avoid close contact with anyone that is ill and disinfect surfaces that are frequently touched such as your phone, keyboard, or desk.

The Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is now reporting high flu activity in Maryland. Even when flu vaccine does not prevent illness, it still lessens the severity and shortens the duration of the flu, health officials said. Warning signs of the flu include: high fever, headache, joint or muscle pain, cough, chills, sore throat, congestion and fatigue. Symptoms such as vomiting and diarrhea could occur, but is is more common in children than adults.

"Influenza is a potentially deadly disease, and getting vaccinated is the best thing New Yorkers can do to protect themselves and those around them, followed by good hand hygiene", said Dr. Howard Zucker, state Department of Health commissioner.


■ Do not cough or sneeze into your hands.

If you are in good underlying health, your symptoms are limited, fever and body aches are well controlled with antipyretics like acetaminophen and you are maintaining adequate hydration and nutrition, you can choose to ride it out.

That was the case with 10-year-old CT boy Nico Mallozzi, who died on January 14 from sepsis resulting from pneumonia.

The CDC is still encouraging people to get a flu shot if they haven't received one.

The restrictions will continue until further notice.

Health officials say ambulances and emergency rooms are still busy but getting back to normal, even after they continuously saw lines forming outside the waiting rooms.

The 10 countries where the CDC will continue its work are India, Thailand, Vietnam, Kenya, Uganda, Liberia, Nigeria, Senegal, Jordan and Guatemala, the Journal reported.
