That jump is a far cry, however, from the same week last flu season when reported cases spiked to 2,332. Young told CBS4 that flu activity right now is fairly comparable to what they saw this time previous year. About 10 per cent of those cases - 864 - required hospitalization.

"Last year we peaked around New Year's so were hopeful we'll peak soon but haven't yet", Young said. It started in mid-October rather than the beginning of November. To date, 1,339 flu cases have been reported and lab- confirmed this flu season.

The dominant strain of flu circulating this year - influenza A H1N1 - is also associated with "a higher burden of disease ... among children than among adults", Madison told Ireland. The most recent death was in an adult over the age of 65. 80,000 deaths during last season were linked to the flu.

Colorado health officials said the 2017-2018 flu season was one of the worst on record in Colorado. "We are seeing the flu, and we expect it to get worse, as it usually does". The vaccine gives protection against both H3N2 and H1N1 viruses, as well as influenza B. The other six county residents who have died this season had additional medical conditions and either weren't vaccinated or their vaccination status was unknown.

If you are in close contact with people at higher risk of serious complications from influenza, get the vaccine and don't visit them if you feel unwell.

With an increased number of children falling ill with the flu and other respiratory illnesses this time of year, CBC News asked Dr. Jonathan Gubbay, a pediatric infectious disease physician and medical microbiologist with Public Health Ontario for his advice to parents.

From a prevention standpoint, the best things parents can do is have their children vaccinated against the flu, make sure they are washing their hands and keep them home from school if they are sick so they don't spread the virus to others, he said.

If children show any of those symptoms, parents should take them to see their doctor or nurse practitioner, or to the hospital, Gubbay said.
