  • You should keep taking steps to prevent flu, coronavirus

Cathy Slemp said it's the first pediatric flu death in three years.

"Truly, the risk is much higher for any one of us to get the flu versus the coronavirus at this time", said Associate Medical Officer of Health Dr. Colin Lee.

"We can confirm that a 5-year-old child died over the weekend in our Pediatric Intensive Care Unit as the result of the influenza virus", WVU Medicine pediatric infectious specialist Dr Kathy Moffett said in a statement.

The West Virginia Department of Health and Human Resources (DHHR), Bureau for Public Health has confirmed an influenza-associated pediatric death for the 2019-20 flu season in Monongalia County.

The Bureau for Public Health says flu activity is widespread across West Virginia.

Slemp adds the flu shot is a reliable defense for the flu. Shots are still widely available and are covered by Medicare Part B with no copay for adults age 65 and older. "Even at this time of year, if you haven't had the flu shot, you should make an appointment and get it". However, the general public can take the usual, recommended actions to prevent infection.

She said the flu is simply unpredictable, but the best way to protect yourself is by washing your hands with soap and water often.

Avoid contact with people who are sick and things they may have touched.

Anyone who thinks they have the flu should immediately contact a doctor to see if they need treatment with a prescription antiviral drug.

Flu symptoms may come on quickly and include fever, headache, extreme tiredness, dry cough, sore throat, runny or stuffy nose, muscle aches, nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea. Those who are sick should cover their cough and promptly throw away tissues. For more information on flu in Virginia, visit www.vdh.virginia.gov/epidemiology/influenza-flu-in-virginia/.

Connie DeBenedet, Hamilton's infectious diseases program manager, says the current infection rate as of February 10 sees 500 lab-confirmed influenza A cases - the more serious strain of the virus - and approximately 120 lab-confirmed influenza B cases, which is "typical" for any given year over the last decade.
