dr martens 3 eyelet Flu season at its peak

Augusta, Ga (WJBF) Flu season is at its peak. Now that kids are back in school, flu cases are on the rise.

The Children’s Hospital of Georgia’s Dr. James Wilde specializes in infectious diseases. He says Georgia is behind the flu curve.

“We didn’t have a whole lot of flu until about a week or two ago, at least in the Augusta area,” says Dr. Wilde. “Once school gets back in session, it starts to go right back up again.”

Wilde explains even though the national story touts a bad season, CDC data like the number of pediatric deaths, says something different.

“We average about 75 100 kids per year in a nation of 75 million kids who die from flu. We’ve had 20 so far this year who have died from the flu,” says Dr. Wilde.

So why all the buzz about a bad flu season? Dr. Wilde points partially to the bad one the Southern Hemisphere had about 4 6 months ago.

“CDC has been predicting a really bad season. So far, at least in the Augusta area, we are not seeing a horrible season,” Dr. Wilde describes.

As for the vaccine, they will not have the full data until the end of the season, but the prediction is that it was not all that helpful this year.

“For reasons that are not entirely clear, it’s just not a very helpful vaccine, this year or last year,” explains Dr. Wilde.

However, Dr. Wilde points out that you are still better off getting the flu vaccine even though it is not guaranteed to keep you 100% healthy.

“For children, you’re looking at 60 70% protection, in adults you’re looking at about 85 90% protection so even in a good year, the flu vaccine is not a super vaccine. In a poorly matched year, lots of people will get the flu, even with the vaccine.”

This is key do not reach for antibiotics because the flu is a virus.

“You feel miserable, what can you do about it? Go to bed, take Tylenol or Motrin for the aches pains and fever, get lots of fluids and wait it out,” Dr. Wilde advises.

Flu season is ramping up in New Hampshire, just as it is in most of the country, with a particularly severe strain adding to the number of hospitalizations and even fatalities.

As of the end of 2017, five deaths in New Hampshire have been attributed to flu, which is on par with other seasons in which the dominant flu strain is a type known as H3N2, said Dr. Benjamin Chan, the state’s epidemiologist, on Tuesday.

“I think the overall message is that the flu season that we’re seeing in New Hampshire is on par with what we have seen in prior seasons . when a H3N2 strain predominates. . These tend to be more severe; hospitalization rates are higher; there are more deaths,” Chan said.

H3N2 refers to the type of proteins on the surface of the flu virus.

Flu is widespread in all states as of the first week of January, and its severity, going by a measure called ILI, for influenza like illness, is much worse in most of the country than in northern New England, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Because the flu is not a reportable disease in most states, including New Hampshire, the number of cases is estimated through other measures. New Hampshire uses ILI, in which 19 health care providers report data about patients with flu like symptoms but who haven’t been completely diagnosed as having the virus, as well as Automated Hospital Emergency Department Data, in which 19 state hospitals send in data about emergency room patients with acute respiratory illness.

Both of these peak in the first few months of most years and have been rising this year since early December. So far, however, their numbers remain lower than in recent years, particularly 2015. The report for the first week of January should arrive Wednesday of Thursday.

The flu vaccine is still available and, because the flu season usually lasts until at least March and often beyond, Chan said it is still useful to get vaccinated. That is particularly true for those who are most affected by the disease: the very young, very old or those with respiratory and other chronic ailments.

Flu vaccines are free for people under age 18 in New Hampshire and are covered by most health insurance plans for adults.

Different strains of the flu circulate around the world each year, and because it takes many months to produce vaccines there is something of a guessing game each year about which strains the vaccine should focus on.

Chan said this year’s vaccine does emphasize H3N2, as well as the B virus, which tends to circulate later in the season.

The vaccine is estimated to be about 35 percent effective for H3N2, a reflection of the severity of this strain. Despite that seemingly poor result, Chan said, the vaccine can reduce the severity or length of illness even if it doesn’t completely prevent it.

The newest figures from the Center of Disease Control and Prevention regarding the flu epidemic show that the outbreak hasn peaked yet. High flu activity is being reported in 42 states now, that three more than a week ago.

So far this year, more than 14,000 people have been hospitalized compared to the 6,500 the same time last year. Tragedy hitting the youngest among us with 16 children dying from the deadly strain last week alone. 53 children have died so far this winter.

Thomas Frieden, Former CDC Director, tells us, “Unfortunately, in an average year, the flu vaccine is only about 60 percent effective. Most of our vaccines are 90 95 percent effective. This year, it looks like it may be as little as ten or 20 percent or 30 percent effective. So, again, it better than nothing, but not a lot better than nothing.”

Though the news was disappointing for the east coast, there was good news for the western part of the US, though, as it appears flu activity there is starting to trend downward.

YAKIMA, Wash. The number of Yakima County cases continues to climb and at least one death has been confirmed from the current flu season.

By Wednesday, 107 flu cases had been confirmed by the Yakima Health District, up from 95 cases last week and 37 during the final week of December, said director of disease control Melissa Sixberry. Because one of the four Benton County flu deaths within the past few weeks was a Yakima County woman, the district will tally that into its final numbers, which also may continue to increase.

Although the health district receives flu data from local hospitals Virginia Mason Memorial hospital and Astria Regional Medical Center in Yakima, as well as Astria Toppenish Hospital and Astria Sunnyside Hospital it doesn’t include testing from private providers. Instead, it’s used as a general guideline instead of an actual representation, Sixberry said.

McClinton said WDH flu testing and national reports so far show this season’s vaccine is a good match for the flu strains circulating in Wyoming and across the country. Flu shots are available in many different locations such as public health nursing offices, retail stores and medical clinics.

Van Houten reminded residents it takes about two weeks for flu vaccines to offer protection. “If you’re exposed to the virus in the meantime, you may still become ill,” he said.

Common sense measures can also help slow or prevent influenza’s spread. “Covering your mouth and nose with your sleeve or a tissue when you sneeze and cough; frequently washing your hands; and staying home from work, school, day care and errands when you are ill can be effective,

” Van Houten said.

Doctors may recommend prescription antiviral medications to help treat influenza. These medications may be especially helpful for persons at higher risk for flu complications such as young children, older adults, persons with chronic medical conditions, persons with challenged immune systems, pregnant women, persons less than 19 years of age who are on long term aspirin therapy for other conditions, those who are extremely overweight, and residents of nursing homes or other chronic care facilities.

CAIBARIEN, Cuba (AP) Cuba evacuated tourists from beachside resorts and Floridians emptied stores of plywood and bottled water after Hurricane Irma left at least 16 people dead and thousands homeless on a devastated string of Caribbean islands and spun toward Florida for what could be a catastrophic blow this weekend.

Warships and planes were dispatched with food, water and troops after Irma smashed homes, schools and roads, laying waste to some of the world’s most beautiful and exclusive tourist destinations. On the island of St. Thomas, power lines and towers were toppled, leaves were stripped off plants and trees, a water and sewage treatment plant was heavily damaged and the harbor was in ruins, along with hundreds of homes and dozens of businesses.

Thousands of tourists were trapped on St. Martin, St. Barts, and the Virgin Islands in the path of Category 3 Hurricane Jose, which threatened to roll in from the Atlantic and strike as early as Saturday.

Irma weakened from a Category 5 storm to Category 4 on Friday morning with maximum sustained winds near 150 mph (240 kph), but it remained a powerful hurricane. Florida braced for the onslaught, with forecasters warning that Irma could slam headlong into the Miami metropolitan area of 6 million people, punish the entire length of the state’s Atlantic coast and move into Georgia and South Carolina.

More than a half million people in Miami Dade County were ordered to leave as Irma closed in with winds of 175 mph (280 kph). People rushed to board up their homes, take their boats out of the water and gas up their cars. With gasoline running out and tensions rising, the Florida Highway Patrol escorted tanker trucks sent to replenish gas stations.

“It is wider than our entire state and could cause major and life threatening impacts from coast to coast. Regardless of which coast you live on, be prepared to evacuate,” Gov. Rick Scott said. history.

The hurricane rolled past the Dominican Republic and Haiti and battered the Turks and Caicos Islands early Friday with waves as high as 20 feet (6 meters). Communications went down as the storm slammed into the islands, and the extent of the devastation was unclear.

Irma also spun Friday morning along the northern coast of Cuba, where thousands of tourists were evacuated from low lying keys off the coast dotted with all inclusive resorts. All residents of the area were under mandatory evacuation orders from the Cuban government, which was moving tens of thousands of people from vulnerable coastline.

The first islands hit by the storm were scenes of terrible destruction.

The storm had claimed at least 16 lives, including nine on the French Caribbean islands of St. Martin and St. Virgin Islands, and three on the British island of Anguilla,

On St. Martin, an island split between the Dutch Sint Maarten and French St. Martin, homes were splintered and road signs scattered by the fierce winds. The cafes and clothing shops of the picturesque French seaside village of Marigot were submerged in brown floodwaters and people surveyed the wreckage from whatever shelter they could find. The toll could rise because rescue teams had yet to get a complete look at the damage.

Annick Girardin, minister for France’s overseas territories, said Friday that there had been “scenes of pillaging” of televisions as well as food and water on St. Martin. She said police were working to restore order and ensure urgent care for victims. Consulate General in Curaao said it believes about 6,000 Americans were stranded on St. Martin. and other governments to try to figure out how to get the Americans off the island either by air or boat.

Irma also slammed the French island of St. Barts, tearing off roofs and knocking out electricity in the high end tourist destination.

Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte said the storm “caused wide scale destruction of infrastructure, houses and businesses.”

“There is no power, no gasoline, no running water. Houses are under water, cars are floating through the streets, inhabitants are sitting in the dark in ruined houses and are cut off from the outside world,” he said.

Farther out in the Atlantic, Hurricane Jose strengthened into a Category 3 storm with 120 mph (195 kph) winds.

Two Dutch navy ships were in St. Martin with vital supplies. And two Dutch military aircraft were being sent the island of Curacao and on to St. Martin to deliver food and water intended to last the population of 40,000 five days. The aircraft were carrying 100 extra troops to deliver aid, repair infrastructure and restore order.

Britain was sending hundreds of troops and the Royal Navy flagship HMS Ocean to Anguilla, Montserrat and the British Virgin Islands.

In Anguilla, officials reported extensive damage to the airport, hospitals, shelters and schools and said 90 percent of roads were impassable.

On Barbuda, nearly every building was damaged when the hurricane’s core crossed almost directly over the island early Wednesday. About 60 percent of its roughly 1,400 residents were left homeless, Antigua and Barbuda Prime Minister Gaston Browne said.

He said roads and telecommunications systems were wrecked and recovery will take months,

“Today we join all Americans in reflecting on the legacy and achievements of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. He truly changed the course of human history, and his principles of nonviolence in pursuit of equality and justice continue to serve as an example for all the world. In so many ways, the hope and promise of Reverend King exists today, yet we are all called upon as Americans to continue his work and ensure that equal opportunity is available in every community and every corner of our society, including for our children and grandchildren.”

Gov. Rick Scott

“As Dr. King said the time is always right to do what is right. As Floridians, we should all reflect today on not what just we have accomplished, but what else we can do for others. Floridians care about each other and are always willing to help.

Dr. King’s vision is alive and well in our state, but we must continue to work every day to make sure that everyone can succeed and live the American Dream in Florida. Today, we honor Dr. Sen. Bill Nelson, D Fla. (via Twitter)

“Today we celebrate the legacy and teachings of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. that live on to this day. Sen. Marco Rubio, R Fla. (via Twitter)

“This MLKDay I urge everyone to reflect on the principles that Martin Luther King Jr. peacefully defended so that as a nation we can continue to embody his dream of opportunity and equality for all.””Today we remember the life of a man who inspired millions of Americans to dream of a better tomorrow. As Dr. King said, ‘The time is always right to do what is right.’

Today we celebrate not just a man, but a movement who has advanced the causes of justice and equality in America. The words of Dr. King remain a beacon in our democracy continuing to shape our country for generations to come. Thanks to his sacrifice and the perseverence of those who came after him, our country has made great strides since Dr. King’s famous 1963 speech. Rep. Gus Bilirakis, R Fla.

“Every year, we remember the life and legacy of Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., and honor his lifelong work to overcome prejudice and hatred. This year, as we face the prospect of losing ground in the fight for equality, it is especially meaningful that we reflect on Dr. King’s legacy and everything that he stood for.

Too many inequalities still exist for communities of color. Be it education, housing, or employment opportunities, communities of color still remain at a disadvantage. In the wake of decisions by the Trump Administration to eviscerate funding for affordable housing and education programs that are of great importance to leveling the playing field we must be mindful that the wrongs of the past are not so simply reversed. We must never stop challenging ourselves to do better.

Today’s observance reminds us of our responsibility to provide equal opportunities for all, to reject prejudice, fight discrimination, and to oppose the demonization of any American based on their skin color or ethnicity. Let us rededicate ourselves to fostering progress in our communities, just as Dr. King did not so long ago.”

“Today we honor the life of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., recognize his commitment to service. Dr. King demonstrated what you can accomplish when you have a dream. I implore each of you to dream. Our country has made great progress, but we still have a way to go.”

dr martens student discount Florida teen killed by rare parasite after swim in local river

Courtney Nash died at a hospital from a rare parasite that infected her brain while swimming in the St. John’s River near her home in Broward County. The Orlando Sentinel reports that Central Florida’s fresh water lakes and rivers offer local swimmers picaresque and cool relief from the summer’s scorching heat.

But beneath the cool waters lurks the deadly amoeba Naegleria fowleri, which can be found in the silt at the bottom of most Florida lakes and rivers. Doctors say this amoeba enters its victim through the nose, then attacks the brain and spinal chord.

The New York Daily News reports that Nash and her family went swimming in the St. Johns River last week to escape the heat. But after becoming feverish and delirious a few days later, she was rushed to Arnold Palmer Hospital for Children in critical condition suffering from symptoms similar to primary amoebic meningoencephalitis (PAM). She died soon after.

The dangerous and rare parasite is commonly found in stagnant freshwater during hot weather, as well as poorly tended pools or hot tubs. Doctors say the parasite enters the human body through the nose, the eyes or ears, then attacks the brain and spinal cord, and destroys brain tissue.
