    We cannot close our country, let’s get back to work before people start panicking then will have a bigger problem than this virus. We already have the regular flu we have to deal with.

    Flu Cases Near 30 Million in the US, CDC Reports

    FEBRUARY 28, 2020

    Michaela Fleming

    An original version of this article was published by sister publication ContagionLive.

    The US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has estimated 29 million influenza (flu) cases have reached the US in the 2019-2020 season.

    Though activity remains reportedly high, the CDC indicated overall flu activity has decreased slightly week-over-week.

    Overall, visits to clinicians for influenza-like-illness decreased from 6.7% last week to 6.1% this week. However, all US regions remain above baseline in reporting outpatient influenza-like-illness occurrence.

    According to the latest FluView data, there have been 280,000 hospitalizations for influenza recorded as of February 15, 2020. This figure is consistent with hospitalization rates at this point in time during recent seasons; however, hospitalization rates among children and young adults are considered higher than in recent seasons.

    The CDC also indicates that mortality related to pneumonia and influenza has been low during this respiratory virus season. So far, there have been 16,000 flu-related deaths documented during the US influenza season. Of these, there have been 105 influenza-associated deaths among children.

    Earlier this season, Contagion® reported that influenza B/Victoria was the predominant strain in the US this season. At this point in time, there has been a decrease in the percentage of specimens testing positive for influenza B, although the percentage of specimens testing positive for influenza B is on the rise.  

    Nationally, influenza B viruses are being reported more commonly among children and young adults. Among young children aged 0-4, 53% of reported cases have been B viruses and among the 5- to 24-year-old population 68% of reported cases have been B viruses. On the other hand, A(H1N1)pdm09 viruses are the most commonly reported influenza viruses are the most commonly reported viruses among the 25- to 64-year-old population (57% of reported viruses) and 65+ population (64% of reported viruses).

    The CDC continues to remind the public that antiviral medications are important to control the spread of seasonal flu. Thus far >99% of influenza viruses tested this season are susceptible to the 4 antiviral medications that are approved by the US Food and Drug Administration and that are recommended for use in the United States this season.

    Last week, the CDC’s Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report featured interim estimates of the effectiveness of 2019-20 flu shot. The report estimates that so far this season the vaccine is 45% effective overall and is 55% effective in children.

    Although the authors of the report acknowledged that more effective vaccines are needed, they also noted that the currently available vaccines are providing substantial health benefits.

    “It’s important to know that this COVID-19 emergence is also occurring simultaneous to our regular seasonal influenza,” Christina Tan, MD, MPH, state epidemiologist, assistant commissioner, New Jersey Department of Health, told Contagion®. “What we’re seeing in New Jersey, as well as elsewhere throughout the country, is peak activity of influenza right now. January, February is typically around the time that we see peak activity.”

    So how can we fight flu in the wake of COVID-19’s emergence? Tan said that it’s important to take common-sense steps to prevent all respiratory viruses.

    “This is an opportunity to remind everybody to be mindful that you know, if you haven’t gotten your flu vaccine yet, get vaccinated for flu. Take those easy steps. Cover your coughs and sneezes, make sure you wash your hands all the time. Stay home when you’re sick. Those types of precautions are helpful not only for seasonal flu, but also for whatever it might be emerging.

    Let’s not forget that Trump’s businesses are at stake as well. All his hotels, golf courses are also empty and on a path to lose hundreds of millions.

    After the travel ban, I’m likely to travel to the seaside with a shovel and do my little bit toward widening the Atlantic ocean in an attempt to put just a little bit more distance between us!

    Trump shouldn’t talk about prior presidents cus does not his job. He should be worried about his actions or decisions cus that’s what everybody is looking at!!!!

    Things look fishy with all this, and elections

    That reporter is somehow suggesting that everyone gets tested but hus aim is to secure that he is safe and not infected. You can’t do that to our population. You get tested while sick people die because the medical team is busy testing healthy people.

    You can like Trump or hate Trump that is your prerogative. You can like the Democrats or hate the Democrats that is your right. No matter where you fall on the political spectrum i am convinced that it isn’t Republicans or Democrats, Trump or Pelosi, Schumer or McConnell that make America great. It is the American people that make this country great. God bless you my liberal and conservative Americans…God bless you all!

    Doesn’t want to test the whole nation because Donna Jean Trump knows too many people will prove that this is a hoax too many people tested will prove that this virus doesn’t even exist I know baby give me a lot of sad sad motherfukers when they find out, find out their lives have been interrupted for a nonsensical situation

    This virus is an overblown farce. A weapon of mass DISTRACTION. I am a chemist and biologist by trade. I have worked for EPA and DOD-Homeland Security monitoring for evidence of domestic terrorist bioweapon use (small pox, anthrax, radiological dirty bombs, etc). So i know a little bit about epidemiology. The more deadly and virulent a pathogen is, the less it can go epidemic let alone pandemic. The reason is because the deadly virus incapicates and kills the host, whereas mild viruses such as flues, colds (and COVID19) can spread all over the globe because the host human is very rarely rendered incapacitated or dead. And from my experience in government, I am well aware of the fact that the media disseminates domestic propaganda, and does not report shenanigans being perpetrated by the government

    It’s pointless to test all nation. Regardless all infected people and social distancing, I believe we are all going to get infected sooner or later. The only thing that can be done to prevent further infection is to have scientists come up with a shot that will protect us from the covid19 . In God with trust. I suggest all folks to start pray the lord for the sick people for our nation and the entire world.

    What a ridiculous headline!! Could’ve just as easily titled it “Trump says 0 deaths are acceptable”, but I suppose that would’ve come off too positive.

    My landlord says that due to stimulous package, which I, for one wont get, that rent is still due on time and will still have late fees. They shut down gym and locked office doors. Against my will will bring two strangers in my home , where only I have been in for months, to spray for bugs.
    We dont have bugs.
    It seams to me they are doubling down and getting rich at others great loss and expense.
    I have rent but what abiut the others?

      instead of just telling all the rich people to chill out, on collecting bill payments from everybody

    I’d rather the whole nation get tested for something worse..like incurable STDs and other, MORE common diseases that last a near life time.

    I’ve worked with a lot of people in the hospital setting the bar high individual pieces of when we weren’t sure that wrapping our minds around the same time as the current status and it was different then what we can bring the health of the timeline for when the time is right after the other supplies to government for the understanding analysis and I hope for the best outstanding balance for a future of putting that portion of the needs of what being out if work and the best of what unemployment to meet the new perspective of self development in truth and intense but real life to live in transition to work independently wealthy in self love

    While a lot of people hate that, I can see why he’s saying that. Look how people reacted before testing even began!! Stores completely out. Panic around the U.S. if they gave you the real numbers there would be complete anarchy! If you can’t handle the truth don’t be mad when you’re lied to!

    40 years Biden has been in Washington even as V.P. why hadn’t he prepared America for such a pandemic!?
    Pelosi has been in Washington 35 years why had she not prepared for such a pandemic!?
    What exactly have the old politicians done to earn their substantial pay for the last 30 to 40 years!?

    Mr. President take notes this dude is far from intelligent and Trump should be aware of whose doing this. It has been phnemonia for centuries it’s a rapid death meaning I don’t think that they will suffer that much? I guess also that if people getting infected with serm-19 and pronto jefe.

    Only a MORON will ask “ How many deaths are acceptable”🤨🤨 I am surprised trump didn’t throw him out of the building because that is the dumbest question ever asked by a reporter in the history of mankind.
