Michalezki, Amanda, January 12, 2019.
Flu incidents continue to grow throughout the country, but the flu season is very different.
A major H1N1 flu is circulating before the previous year, and in recent years there is no virus that causes the pandemic 2009-10. This virus tends to make children and adults more youthful and in this season there is no exception in different age groups that affect different tensions.
In the case of H1N1 influenza, the BC Center for Disease Control has confirmed that during this period, a third of all detection has been that children have been at least nine years old or younger due to the lack of immunity prior to the H1N1 epidemic.
Dr. Vivien Suttorp, the Healthcare Department of Health at the Alberdania Health Service, in the South, has said that other flu tensions circulate in different geographies at different times.
In 2013, another H1N1 pandemic, Suttorp told the public how to use vaccines, when the severity of the virus was detected and their vaccine.
During the flu season, the virus is recovering again, with a total of 4,700 cases confirmed.
In previous seasons, they had an impact on H3N2. This strain is especially severe due to the increased risk of complications such as pneumonia, which can lead to the elderly immune system, the usual hospitalization or the death.
AHS has had very little hints of H3N2 in Southern South so far. Influenza A The H3N2 vaccine is not as effective as the vaccine is H1N1, although Influenza A is the tension. The H3N2 virus is changing so fast and why vaccines are needed every year, said Suttorp.
"Since October, over 80 percent of hospitalized Alberta hospitals have not been immunized. We have not seen that H3N2 is a transient precipitation in other years, as this vaccine is not effective," said Suttorp.
South Wings have had anger in the H1N1 this season, in the elderly monitoring facilities, because vaccines are very effective, and care for elderly people is well immunized, said Suttorp.
A vaccine against flu A covers four protective protections: Influenza A H1N1 and Influenza A H3N2, as well as two influenza C-type tensions.
Influenza A viruses act differently, but all of them cause a respiratory system, said Suttorp.
People have been able to feel better, but it needs more time to recover from the respiratory system.
A week after testing the positive effects of laboratory tests, there is only a little about this week, according to the latest AHS data, but if people are not immunized with H1N1 or any other strain, another flu can also be obtained later in the flu season, beginning in March to the end of April.
"It is not a direct vaccine virus, the vaccine does the immunity of foreign virus proteins," said Suttorp. "As soon as you see the virus, you can withstand this, and if you have already prepared antibodies and you are ready to attack this virus."
Although the vaccine does not provide 100 percent immunity, the consequences will be less complicated and hospitalization will be less likely.
Suttorp said the vaccine is already available when immunization is available, it is best to get an immune system in two weeks.
Since September, the Canadian Public Health Agency said that 414 children were at the age of 16 that children were dead and was the highest rate admitted to children under the age of five. In 2017
According to the latest data released by the PHAC on December 29, the cause of influenza that confirmed 13,796 laboratories has been in Canada. Territories and territories reported 1,046 hospitalizations and 24 deaths, in most cases among under-65s.
People with illnesses (H1N1 or H3N2) will not notice much difference, they will produce two fever, cough, achy muscles, and joints, and have a general illness.
If Suttorp suggests that you are waking up in your home, practice your cough protocol, clean your hands and keep your immunizations up to date.
