Arkansas Child Flu Deaths Grows to Five

The decline in influenza A is particularly important this flu season because it has been responsible for high rates of hospitalization and for the large number of pediatric deaths, according to the Centers for Disease Control.

Additionally, there were 893 new cases added to the now 6,674 lab-confirmed instances of influenza, which is the highest since those numbers were tracked, which started during the 2004-2005 season.

PHOENIX - This year's flu season has been one of the worst in modern day history - and it is not over yet. Since October, 23,324 people have been hospitalized for influenza-associated complications.

The CDC said last month that the flu vaccine has only been 36 percent effective.

It had been driven by a kind of flu that tends to put more people in the hospital and cause more deaths, and officials lately are seeing less of that.

DHEC says the flu shot is the best protection against the flu. That will also help prevent the spread of other respiratory viruses that circulate during the winter, he said.
