RALEIGH (WTVD) —
The North Carolina Division of Health and Human Services launched Thursday that the bid saw
one fresh flu death remaining week, bringing the total to 5 for the season.
In the course of the 2017-2018 flu season, 391 deaths were reported in North Carolina, making it among the deadliest flu seasons the bid has considered.
Of those 391 deaths, 290 were americans age 65 and older and seven were young americans below the age of 18.
The department of successfully being defines a flu-associated death as a “death this ability that of a clinically ample illness that became confirmed to be influenza by a suitable laboratory or fleet diagnostic take a look at without a interval of total restoration between the illness and death.”
The CDC recommends vaccination against the flu for each person 6 months and older.
