Ottawa, in contrast, was seeing a lower rate of influenza overall and among children than the national rates as of the end of the year (the most recent numbers).

It's been less severe so far this year, but federal health officials say they're now seeing sharp increases in flu activity nationwide.

While H1N1-predominant seasons tend to be milder overall at the population level compared to those characterized primarily by H3N2, individuals who get hit with either strain won't detect much of a difference - both bring on fever, cough, general malaise and achy muscles and joints, she said from Vancouver. That's more than double the activity of the previous week.

All hospitals in Marion County will begin temporarily restricting visitors starting no later than Friday in response to the rising flu activity.

However, these figures reflect only cases in which testing was performed; many more people who come down with the flu don't seek medical assistance and therefore aren't tested. (Lab-confirmed cases represent a small percentage of all flu cases, often just the ones that require hospitalization).

With illness spreading and months of flu season left to go, experts still recommend getting a flu shot.

The child, from the central region of the state, died in late December. Severe complications of influenza infection include pneumonia which can lead to hospitalization and death.

The most effective way to protect against the flu is to get a dose of seasonal flu vaccine.

Federal health officials say it's still not too late to get a flu shot. Even if you think you had the flu already, it is possible to get a second infection with a different strain, so immunization can still be beneficial.
