The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) released a report on Tuesday, reporting the rising rate of
influenza cases across the nation, and reminded the public to get their flu shots before winter arrives.
A 36-year-old man has died from flu just one day after he first started showing symptoms, according to the CDC.
A total of 19 new cases of Severe Complicated Influenza were recorded last week alone, the highest weekly figure in seven months, the CDC said, with 95 percent of which associated with chronic health problems, which placed the patients at greater risk of complications from influenza.
H3N2, H1N1 and influenza B have also resulted in 3 deaths since October 1, all of which aged between 36 and 78 and suffered from chronic health conditions, according to the CDC. [FULL STORY]
