    Flu outbreak in New Orleans area reaches high level, officials tell people with flu to stay home

    ...
    Frank Welch, medical director for the Louisiana Department of Health's Immunization Program, said the percentage of patients reporting flu-like symptoms to their doctors has jumped above 8 percent, indicating a severe flu season.

    When cases are broken down by region, the number jumps to more than 10 percent of patients for the area that encompasses Orleans, Jefferson, St. Bernard and Plaquemines parishes. The typical high is between 4 and 5 percent, Welch said.
    ...
    It’s two subtypes of that Type A strain — H1N1, or swine flu, and H3N2 — that Welch said are primarily being reported this year.

    St. Tammany Parish coroner sends stern message about the flu

    Michael Vinsanau
    Reporter

    COVINGTON, La. —

    Within the past two weeks, a rise in the number of flu cases has prompted the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to raise the warning level for Louisiana from moderate to high.

    With that increase comes a simple but stern message from the St. Tammany coroner Dr. Charles Preston: Get the flu shot.

    "Just last week, an elementary school in Jefferson Parish had more than 100 reported cases of the flu or a flu-like virus," Preston said. "Almost all of this is preventable."
