Flu fa­tal­i­ties high­est in Tulsa

La Semana - - FRONT PAGE / PORTADA -

ENGLISH Tulsa is be­ing called “flu city,” the Ok­la­homa me­trop­o­lis with the most ca­su­al­ties re­lated to sea­sonal flu.

The city has re­ported 10 deaths from the flu, ac­cord­ing to a spokesper­son with the Ok­la­homa Depart­ment of Health. 1400 peo­ple have been hos­pi­tal­ized in the state of Ok­la­homa for flu and 45 have died in dif­fer­ent ar­eas in the Sooner state.

Even though this flu sea­son has more deaths than the pre­vi­ous year in Tulsa, in com­par­i­son with 20162017, which reg­is­tered 110 deaths, the over­all amount of deaths is lower.

The Health Depart­ment is­sued a state­ment ask­ing the pop­u­la­tion of Ok­la­homa to be care­ful with the flu, to take all rec­om­mended pre­cau­tions to avoid spread­ing the ill­ness, such as wash­ing their hands reg­u­larly, dis­in­fect­ing pub­lic ar­eas, and us­ing dis­pos­able tis­sue when cough­ing or sneez­ing.

If you feel sick, stay at home, avoid pub­lic places such as work or school, and visit your doc­tor for a full re­cov­ery. (La Se­m­ana)
