"Flu is now beginning to circulate, and as schools reopen and people return to work we are likely to see increased levels", said HSE's Assistant National Director for Public Health Dr Kevin Kelleher. That's more than double the number of states from the previous week.

According to figures provided by the department, which cover the period between Sunday and Thursday, six of the adults who died were aged 65 or over, while the seventh was over 50, while 84 per cent of the severe cases are related to influenza A (H1).

Four flu-related pediatric deaths were reported during week 51, bringing the total to seven pediatric deaths during the current flu season.

Dr. William Schaffner, who studies the flu, says that's not unusual; when flu kills a child, it often happens quickly.

Flu season officially began in October, and can last into May. And the CDC has confirmed one child in MI has died.

He urged the public, especially children and the elderly, to get vaccinated as soon as possible as it usually took around two weeks for the body to develop antibodies after vaccination. But the good news is that H1N1 has been included in this year's annual flu vaccine.

The 2017-18 season was considered a particularly bad time for the flu.

Doctors are recommending that people get the flu shot.

Of the 185 children who died from the flu a year ago, 80% had not received a flu shot, according to the CDC.

Pharmacies like CVS on Davis Street in Scranton are busy as cold and flu season are underway.
