Latest WebMD News

Significant increase in respiratory infections in the US

Nov 26, 2022

November 26, 2022 The Doctors of the Therapeutic Clinic of the School of Medicine of the National and Kapodistrian University of Athens, Theodora Psaltopoulou, Rodanthi Eleni Syrigou and Giannis Danasis, summarize the data of the recent publication by Michal Canetti and colleagues in the prestigious scientific review WebMd on the subject of the 16 regions in America with the largest flu rates. After its early onset, the flu continues to spread steadily across the United States, with the number of cases continuing to double each week. According to available data, since the beginning of the flu season so far, 23,000 people have been hospitalized and 1,300 people have died from the flu. The flu’s impact on children is on the rise, with three pediatric deaths reported by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) in the most recent week’s data report, bringing this year’s flu season’s total of child deaths to five. Last week, 6,465 patients were admitted to hospitals with a positive flu test, the CDC reported. One way the CDC measures the impact of the flu is by tracking outpatient visits nationwide for upper respiratory infections, which are defined as fever with a cough or sore throat. Outpatient visits with this symptomatology may include other illnesses besides influenza such as respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) as well as Covid-19, with the number of these having an increasing trend. The CDC lists 16 states or major metropolitan areas with the most frequent respiratory outpatient visits, namely: Alabama, Arkansas, District of Columbia, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maryland, Mississippi, New Jersey, New Mexico, North Carolina , South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, Virginia and New York. Last week, only four of those areas were listed as very high frequency: Alabama, the District of Columbia, South Carolina and Tennessee. However, vaccination against influenza provides strong protection. The CDC recommends that anyone 6 months of age and older get a flu shot.
