More flu-related hospitaizations

by

UNDATED (WSAU)  The number of Wisconsinites hospitalized by the flu is now up to 33 – seven more than what state officials reported on Monday. At least four Wisconsin residents have died from the virus, as the nation continues its deadliest start to the flu season since the late 1970’s.

Health officials encourage everyone to get immunized, especially pregnant women. State epidemiologist Tom Haupt said four pregnant women were hospitalized after they failed to get flu shots. That compares to nine for all of last winter.

Last year’s outbreak was fairly mild, and Haupt says we might be headed to a more severe flu season this time around. That’s because the A-H-3 flu type is prevalent.
