The number of lab-confirmed influenza cases in the region increased again last week, the County Health and Human Services Agency announced today.

A total of 74 flu cases were reported last week in San Diego County, 22 more than the 52 reported the prior week.

“We’re seeing a steady increase in flu cases in recent weeks, a sign that influenza activity in the region is growing,” said Wilma Wooten, M.D., M.P.H., County public health officer. “The best protection against influenza is getting a flu shot.”

Last week’s flu case total is more than double the 33 lab-confirmed cases reported during the same week last season. To date, three San Diegans have died from influenza this season, compared to one death at the same time last year. Last season, 77 people in the region died from complications from the flu.

“Everyone should get vaccinated now to avoid getting sick, especially those people at higher risk of developing complications from influenza,” Wooten added.

The County Health and Human Services Agency publishes the Influenza Watch weekly report, which tracks key flu indicators and summarizes influenza surveillance in the region. The report is released every Wednesday during the flu season.

For the week ending Nov. 9, the Influenza Watch report shows the following:

• Emergency department visits for influenza-like illness: 3 percent of all visits (compared to 3 percent the previous week)

• Lab-confirmed influenza cases for the week: 74 (compared to 52 the previous week)

• Total influenza deaths to date: 3 (compared to 1 at this time last season)

• Total lab-confirmed cases to date: 475 (compared to 190 last season)

Your Best Shot Against the Flu

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends that everyone 6 months and older get a flu shot every year. It takes about two weeks for immunity to develop.

Flu vaccination is especially important for people who are at high risk of developing serious complications from influenza. They include:

• People with chronic medical conditions like asthma, diabetes and lung disease, even if symptoms are under control

• Pregnant women

• People 65 years and older

• People who live with or care for others who are at higher risk

In addition to getting vaccinated, people should also do the following to avoid getting sick:

• Wash hands thoroughly and often

• Use hand sanitizers

• Stay away from sick people

• Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth

• Clean commonly touched surfaces

• If you are sick, stay home and avoid contact with others

The flu vaccine is available at doctors’ offices and retail pharmacies. If you don’t have medical insurance, you can go to a County public health center to get vaccinated. For a list of locations, visit www.sdiz.org or call 211 San Diego.

CURED FROM GENITAL HERPES VIRUS

It's a pleasure for me to write this testimony about how i got my Genital Herpes cured a month ago. i have been reading so many comments of some people who were cured from various diseases by Dr .Hazim, but i never believed them. I was hurt and depressed so I was too curious and wanted to try Dr. Hazim , then i contacted him through his email address ([email protected]) when i contact him, he assured me 100% that he will heal me, i pleaded with him to help me out. My treatment was a great success, he healed me just as he promised. he sent me his medication via UPS courier Delivery and ask me to go for check up after 21 days of taking the medication. i agreed with him i took this medication and went for check up after 21 days of the treatment, To my greatest surprise my result came out  negative after the treatment, I'm very happy that i was cured and been  healthy again. I waited for 3 weeks to be very sure if I was completely healed before writing this testimony. I did another blood test one week ago and it was still genital Herpes negative. so i guess its time i recommend anyone going through genital Herpes, HSV-1 or HSV-2, HIV, HPV, Hepatitis B, Diabetes, Cancer, ALS  to contact this great man through his Email ([email protected]) OR add him up on whatsApp  2349058026857Thanks Doctor Hazim Usman

I am so happy to be writing this article in here, i am here to explore blogs forum about the wonderful and most safe cure for HERPES VIRUS . I was positive to the deadly Virus called HERPES and i lost hope completely because i was rejected even by my closet friends. i searched online to know and inquire about cure for HERPES and i saw testimony about Dr Solution online on how he cured so many persons from Herpes Virus, so i decided to contact the herbalist because i know that nature has the power to heal everything. i contacted him to know how he can help me and he told me never to worry that he will help me with the natural herbs from God! after 2 days of contacting him, he told me that the cure has been ready and he sent it to me via Courier Service and it got to me after 4 working days. I used the medicine as he instructed me (Three times daily) and i was cured! its really like a dream but i'm so happy! that's the reason i decided to also add more comment of Him so that more people can be saved just like me! and if you need his help,contact his Email:

I WAS CURED FROM HERPES VIRUS

I was once a victim of Herpes Virus. A good friend of mine who was cured from diabetes introduced me to a doctor named Ahmed Usman from Africa. At first I refused to contact the doctor because of my past experience with most doctors on the internet. Later that day when surfing the internet I came across a testimony of a young lady from Texas who was cured from Genital Herpes with doctor Ahmed Usman Herbal Medicine, so I decided to give the doctor a try, I contacted the doctor with the email on the testimony and after much discussion with him, he prepared the Herbal medicine which I paid for and he sent it to me which I received 3 days later through courier service and after receiving it he prescribed the usage for 21 days that I will be cured. Truly after using the Herbal medicine for 21 days I discovered that there was improvement on my health and the outbreaks I used to have were gone I decided to go for another test and my result was negative with no trace of the virus on my blood, you too can be cured with this doctor, email him on; [email protected] Whatsapp Text/Call 2348064460510. Has cure for HIV, Diabetes, Cancer, Fibroid, Painful joints, Heart disease and Liver disease.

Are you sure? I don't think Herpes is curable. Also, what does this even have to do with the flu? I'm sorry but spreading false information online can lead to very catastrophic consequences, and I hope you rethink your actions and post the truth. Herpes is not curable and not a joke. I am ashamed you lie about something that has nothing to do with this article. Post your anti-vax propaganda elsewhere.

I completely agree with you, Mike Hawk. These lies must be stopped. False information can negatively affect many people's lives, especially lies related to health and medications.

I completely agree with Mike Hawk, I have seen repeated lies on this website about the cure of Herpes, and I want to let you know that it's not a joke.

This conversation is one of beauty, 3 crusaders (now 4) defending the community from misinformation. Believe it or not, I practice abstinence and although I don't have sex I think it is disgusting that people might not know the risks of their actions and what they must do to prevent worst-case scenarios. Herpes is uncurable much like Ms. Anderson's brain damage.
