Columbus Public Health updates flu information
The latest numbers indicate that flu activity continues to increase in the United
States and is widespread in 43 states, including Ohio. The number of confirmed influenza
hospitalizations for Columbus and Franklin County residents this season (536) has
surpassed the total for the entire 2013-14 season. The number is also approaching
the total for the 2012-13 season, which had the highest seasonal numbers since hospitalizations
became reportable in 2009.
Influenza A (H3N2) viruses have been the most common flu viruses so far in the United
States. This type of virus is associated with more severe illness and mortality compared
to H1N1-predominant seasons, especially in older people and young children.
Columbus Public Health recommends these steps this flu season:
- Take time to get a flu vaccine.
- Wash your hands often.
- Stay home if you are sick, and cover your cough and sneeze to avoid spreading flu
and other respiratory viruses to others.
- Take antiviral drugs for flu treatment if your doctor prescribes them. These work
best when they are started within two days of getting sick, so contact your healthcare
provider when symptoms begin.
