And hospital patients are asked to have no more than two visitors at a time.

"There are early indicators that this influenza season is a little bit more severe compared to prior influenza seasons". "You may be here for three hours and believe you will be the next patient".

A health representative from Tippecanoe County said they did not want to comment.

"We've seen an increasing number of cases in the last week", said Dr. Luis Manrique, an infectious disease specialist who has been working at both Delnor and Central DuPage Hospital in Winfield. "If you are sick, please stay home to prevent further spread of the virus".

Adults/children - Fast or difficulty breathing, bluish skin color, unable to drink enough fluids, lethargic, not waking up or not interacting, irritability in children to the point they do not want to be held, fever with a rash, pain/pressure in the chest or abdomen, sudden dizziness, confusion, severe/persistent vomiting, symptoms improve but then return with fever and worse cough.

At the end of its flu season in mid-August, Australia had more than 93,000 laboratory-confirmed cases - nearly 2.5 times the number of infections and double the number of hospitalizations and deaths compared to the previous year.

Gratton said that the health unit's first confirmed case of flu was the B strain, which she said is typically more common at the end of the season. He said Birmingham area hospitals are at or over normal capacity due to a large number of people with flu or flu-like illnesses.

"We couldn't figure out where is everyone today at this school", he explained.

The Ohio Department of Health (ODH) reported the state's first pediatric flu death of the season.

She's seen a recent spike in cases with 170 reports of influenza in the county through December 23, a 45-percent increase from a year ago.

Schneider said the rise in positive flu cases could be attributed to better reporting on the physicians' part.

"We keep hearing about the potential for this to be a very bad flu season but we're not experiencing that right now", said Gratton.

Getting a flu shot is the best preventative measure and it's never too late, Scherzer added.

Up to December 30, 1,050 influenza-associated hospitalizations had been reported and 34 deaths.

Schneider said the key to surviving the flu season without getting ill is to wash hands often, get the flu vaccine and exercise isolation from the public when you are sick with the flu.

Eat a balanced diet and get plenty of sleep.
