   STRUCK DOWN The Aussie Flu has swept through half of Conor McGregor's family

"We see it three months before and three months after, and this is the time of the season where we start to see an up-tick, but we have seen quite a bit the last three weeks of the Influenza virus", she said.

Dr Kelleher urged people to get the vaccination ASAP and said that the more people who get the vaccination, the less chance of it spreading.

She said they usually see it more of strain A at the beginning of flu season and then drifts more toward strain B but everything has come in a little earlier this year - in 2014, 2015 and 2016 the increase in patients didn't hit Conway until late January.

The HSE has revealed a number of people have died from the flu as cases of the strong "Aussie" strain doubled in just one week.

H3N2 has been responsible for some of the worst flu seasons in the U.S. in recent years, including the 2006-2007, 2012-2013, and 2014-2015 bouts. Bennett says it's still too soon to predict what the season will be like.

Palestine recalls United States envoy after Trump's Jerusalem move
The U.S. accepting Jerusalem as the capital of Israel will show the U.S. will not back down to blackmail from terrorists. Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas said he would not accept any United States peace plan in the wake of Mr Trump's move.

"These symptoms include coughs, runny nose, fever, sore throat, fatigue, aches and pains".

You can only get the flu from the influenza virus.

What are the symptoms of Aussie flu?

Most health insurance plans cover influenza vaccines.

However, such prediction can be wrong, leading to vaccines containing different viruses from those making people sick during flu season, the CDC said. The annual vaccine is created to protect against three or four flu strains a season. Even though the vaccine is not ideal, and is not a guarantee against all flu-like illnesses, what is true is that it will offer protection and it will lessen the course of the disease, even if you or your child contract influenza. Avoid people who appear to be sick.

The No. 4-seeded Saints (11-5) will host the No. 5 Panthers (11-5) in the first round next Sunday at 4:40 p.m. New Orleans Saints running backs Mark Ingram and Alvin Kamara have combined to have outstanding seasons.

Now Public Health England and the Irish HSE have now urged people at higher risk of flu such as the elderly, pregnant women and children with chronic illness to get vaccinated, but should we all be panicking?

State Sen. Brownie Carson, D-Brunswick, said he's concerned that ME still doesn't have enough public health nurses on hand if a flu epidemic were to break out this season.

Myth #6 - You can't spread the flu if you are feeling well.

Dr. Mendoza is reminding people that the flu is a respiratory viral illness, and now is a good time to remind residents about ways to prevent the transmission of the illness.

The Type B virus has been responsible for 68 percent of confirmed severe cases, CDC said. It is working with NHS England to put measures in place to manage potential increases in flu activity. Those 18 years of age and older may also be able to get their influenza vaccine at a local pharmacy.

USA could use some 'good old global warming' during cold snap
Trump also told the Times he wasn't anxious about the uncertainty concerning when the Mueller investigation might be concluded. The negative reaction continued as Donald Trump's attempt at trolling appeared to backfire.

Government statistics showed 1,111 people were struck down with the disease as temperatures plummeted last week - a 156 per cent jump on the previous seven days.
