Entry Description

INDIANAPOLIS—Influenza deaths in Indiana remain at 43, after consistently rising since earlier this month. Most deaths involve individuals 65 and older and those with underlying medical conditions, such as heart disease, asthma, diabetes and renal disease. Health officials say individuals 65 and older are strongly encouraged to seek medical attention promptly if they are experiencing flu symptoms.

 

Symptoms of influenza include: high fever, headache, fatigue, cough, muscle aches and sore throat. Health officials encourage anyone experiencing these symptoms to contact their health care provider.

 

Although nationally influenza-like illness remains high, it appears to be decreasing in some areas, including the Midwest, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. State health officials remind Hoosiers to get vaccinated and practice the three Cs: clean your hands, cover your cough, and contain the spread of germs by staying home if you are sick. 

 

The Indiana State Department of Health issues a weekly flu report on Wednesdays which is available on its website, www.StateHealth.in.gov. Visitors can also find a flu vaccine locator.
