 Jan 10 - 18 People died from the Flu in Boston
topic by moneyoncjmind - 01-11-2013, 12:34 AM

(CBS News) The nationwide flu outbreak has taken a dangerous turn in Boston. Boston Mayor Thomas Menino has just declared a state of emergency in his city.

In recent weeks, 18 people across Massachusetts have died because of the flu.

National flu outbreak widens
Complete coverage: Health Center: Cold & Flu

At Massachusetts General, the hospital is restricting the number of visitors to some areas of the hospital, such as the OB-GYN floors to protect some of the hospital's most vulnerable patients, and asking hospital staff to wear masks throughout the day.

In the U.S., 41 states are currently seeing intense flu outbreaks, almost five weeks earlier than usual this year.

The harsh flu season has hit the Boston especially hard. The city has already seen some 700 cases of the flu since October 1, and four flu-related de@ths. This, compared with only 70 cases at this time last year.

Dr. Barbara Ferrer, executive director of the Boston Public Health Commission, said, "In the last two weeks alone, we've doubled our number, so if we continue at this rate to see new cases, we'll have an explosion of flu in the city of Boston."

Dr. Paul Biddinger, emergency medical director at Massachusetts General Hospital, said, "It's very important to get the word out that the entire health care system is under strain."

The hospital is dealing with many of Boston's new cases. Biddinger says this has become the most significant surge in Boston flu in five years. "We've been seeing record-setting volume," he said. "We've seen 600 more patients in the month of December as compared to last year's December."

Flu victim Dora Oquendo says the illness hit her on Sunday. She said, "I can't even move. I'm so weak, tired, exhausted. I'm throwing up too from doing all the coughing."

Scientists recently discovered this year's vaccine is not protecting against a strain of the virus called Influenza B, but Biddinger says vaccination is still your best defense at preventing the flu. He said, "It is absolutely not too late to get your flu shot. I would strongly encourage anyone who has not gotten their flu shot yet to get their flu shot soon. It would be a great idea."

Boston's mayor has said free flu clinics will be offered all day Friday.

Some of you don't understand the nature of preventative inoculation...

The reason so many people are still catching the flu and getting sick is because there are several strains of it out there and it continues to mutate..

They can only give you shots for the strains that they've got and that you can build up antibodies for in your body..

I'd be pretty wary about a flu shot that's offered free.

I haven't gotten any shots since the required ones needed to start school back in elementary, last time I've been to the hospital was when I was like 13 or 14. In 12 years, only thing I could remember getting is a fever two years ago, I barely get a cold in winter.

The good book speaks on tempting your own personal faith, by putting stock in fake prophesies.

All your conspiracy mumbo jumbo is false.
