Clark Co. Health Officials Confirm Flu-Related Death
CLARK COUNTY -- Clark County health officials have confirmed a death due to flu-related death. Douglas G. Stevenson was 58. Health Commissioner Charles Patterson released a statement Wednesday, saying in part, "The Clark County Combined Health District expresses our deepest sympathy to the Stevenson family for their loss of a loved one... This is a tragedy for the family and we request that their privacy be respected during this difficult time.
Clark County has seen an increase in flu-related illnesses this year. So far, 30 people have been hospitalized with complications. That's compared with just 17 last year.
Symptoms of influenza can include fever, cough, sore throat, body aches, headache, chills and fatigue. Flu is a serious contagious disease that can lead to hospitalization and even death. All residents should take time to get a flu vaccine. This vaccine is the first and most important step in protecting against flu viruses.
Everyday preventative actions to stop the spread of flu include:
- Avoid contact with sick people.
- If you are sick, stay home.
- Cover your nose and mouth when you cough or sneeze.
- Wash your hands often with soap and water. If soap and water are not available, use an alcohol-based
- hand rub.
- Clean and disinfect surfaces and objects that may be contaminated with germs like the flu.
- If you do get the flu, antiviral drugs can treat the illness, making it milder and shortening the time one is sick.
As a result The Clark County Combined Health District encourages Clark County residents to get their influenza vaccine.
Flu vaccines are available during business hours at CCCHD, 529 E. Home Rd. Springfield, Ohio 45503, local pharmacies, and your Doctor.
