4-Year-Old Dies From Complications Linked To Flu In Riverside County

As flu outbreak numbers rise, the HSE says it's not too late to get your vaccine

Those at higher risk of flu complications include children under five, pregnant women, the elderly and those with chronic illnesses. That applies to data collected on both adults and children. That's slightly less compared to this time past year, but by February of 2018, the number of flu-related deaths skyrocketed to 200.

"It's not too late in the season to get your flu shot", said Wilma Wooten, M.D., M.P.H., County public health officer.

The Public Health Agency of Canada reports that 414 children under the age of 16 had to be hospitalized due to influenza across Canada since September, including 71 who had to be admitted to the ICU. "It's just a slow upward, so we're only at the beginning of flu season right now".

Moore said physicians at CHEO are seeing cases of RSV (respiratory syncytial virus) and other viruses as well as some flu.

It's about how you respond. "Ki coming on after a minute and playing like he did [was] absolutely outstanding". I think you've got to look at those boys today and say how well they've done.


Flu cases last week fell to 257 from 369 the previous week.

The Children's Hospital of Wisconsin is temporarily banning children under the age of 12 from visiting in order to prevent the further spread of the flu virus. Flu activity tends to peak between December and February but can last as late as May.

A total of 13 children have died so far this flu season.

From Dec. 23 to 29, 2019, the province reported 64 new influenza cases, including one death and one ICU admission.

The HSE is urging all people in at-risk groups for the flu to get vaccinated if they have not done so already. Vaccines protect against multiple flu strains.

"Don't linger. Run, do not walk, and get your influenza vaccine because it does take 10 days to 2 weeks for the body to build up its maximum protection", said Schaffner.

Other tests called rapid molecular assays can also take 15 to 20 minutes to complete and they detect the actual genetic material of the flu virus, according to the CDC.
