On January 2, President Trump sought to antagonize North Korean leader Kim Jung Un that the US nuclear arsenal was more powerful than the hermit kingdom's, in a tit for tat after Mr. Kim said he had his country's nuclear button ready. The oldest and the youngest are the most vulnerable. According to a news release from the Mississippi Hospital Association, the number of patients in the hospital for flu-like illness nationally has increased about 35 percent up from lost year.

"Recently, the CDC issued a health advisory advising clinicians that all hospitalized and high-risk persons with suspected influenza should be treated with antiviral medications and that benefits are observed even when treatment is initiated beyond two days of illness onset", he said.

"We appreciate the community's cooperation as we impose these restrictions", said Karen Zimmerman, chief nurse officer.

Montgomery County health officials confirmed a man in his 70s died January 9 due to the flu. The Georgia Department of Public Health (DPH) has confirmed four flu-related deaths so far, but that number is expected to increase.

Seven children died from the flu last week, bringing the total pediatric flu deaths reported to the CDC this season up to 20. Flu symptoms may include fever, cough, sore throat, headache, and/or muscle aches.

Hospitalizations have seen a sharp uptick since last week, according to the latest numbers from CDC's weekly update today, which covers the week ending Jan 6.

Nebraska has had 2,877 cases of influenza this season, 858 just this week.

Bennett, the Maine CDC epidemiologist, said that older populations are more at risk, especially those in long-term care facilities, such as nursing homes or assisted living centers.

Flu vaccinations is the most effective protections against the flu, according to State Epidemiologist Dr. Jonathan Ballard. The five people who died were all elderly and at least three had underlying medical conditions, DPH Director of Communications Nancy Nydam said. "We don't have a crystal ball".
