Officials report 7 more flu deaths in NC; 20 for the season

A flu shot being administered

Dr. Tan said many illnesses can cause similar symptoms, including headache, fever and chills, so unless you get tested, you won't know for sure. Some county health directors decline to confirm flu-related deaths, per DHHS direction.

Arizona is one of 21 states in the country reporting a high number of outpatient visits due to flu in the previous week, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said.

Nationally, flu season has arrived stronger than projected, according to federal health officials.

Also there is the Auto Cord feature, allowing the cable to quickly wind up so that it makes moving the projector even easier. Unfortunately, the same can't be said of the sound quality given the two puny 7W speakers that the setup accommodates.

"This is the time of year where there's an increase in viral illnesses generally speaking, so it's really important to remind people to wash your hands, and make sure you cover your cough".

The North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services announced Thursday that there have been seven more flu deaths, raising this season's total to 20.

"It's a little too early to tell", what kind of flu season we're going to have, he said. DHHS, per its privacy policy, declined to provide the gender, hometown and county of the victim. "They find people who have actually come down with the flu and they ask them 'did you get the flu shot?' People don't always remember three or four months back, and if they do remember then they don't recall just when they got it, so it all depends on how the information is gathered".

"We're about two weeks ahead of where we were a year ago", she said.
