"This year, the predominant strain we're seeing is H1N1", Shahab said. "In the last week or so we've started to see increases, similar to what we're seeing nationally. We don't think it's peaked yet".

Traditionally, the H1N1 component is better at halting the spread of that strain of the virus, compared to H3N2, which has a greater propensity to genetically mutate, often in the manufacturing process.

Influenza is a respiratory illness that can cause fever, cough, sore throat, body aches and fatigue. "Vaccination goes a long way to reducing symptoms".

Many medical clinics and pharmacies offer flu shots.

Jack Gardner, 14, of Huntley received his annual flu shot Wednesday at Northwestern Medicine Huntley Hospital. He or she was not vaccinated against the flu.

"I wish I had a crystal ball", Melnick said. Maine has had three flu deaths so far this season, the Maine Center for Disease Control and Prevention reported.


Another Saskatchewan life has been lost due to influenza, bringing the province's total number of flu-related deaths to six since September 1, 2018.

That year, Clark County didn't enter active flu season until the end of January, and stayed above the 10 percent threshold until spring. However, it does not count people who deal with the illness alone and do not report their symptoms.

The New Jersey Department of Health is confirming the state's first pediatric flu death of the season. School absenteeism because of the flu is reported weekly.

About 225,000 people had tested positive for the flu in 2017-18, the U.S. CDC said, but the actual number of cases is much higher because many are not tested and recover at home.

Since December 1 last, there have been 39 confirmed cases in the Mid-West, and 26 of these detections were resident in Limerick.
