PINELLAS COUNTY, Fla. (WFLA) – It's that time of year – flu and respiratory syncytial virus season.  

The Florida Department of Health reports Influenza cases have spiked across the state, especially in the Tampa Bay area and in children. 

"We do get concerned because the kids are usually the harbors of these viruses and they tend to spread them," said St. Petersburg pediatrician Dr. Jeffrey Hirschfield. 

Dr. Hirschfield tells 8 On Your Side, he has seen a peak in patients come in with the flu virus or RSV symptoms

"When you see these illnesses going around the community, they tend to spread pretty quickly. It may be through their older siblings," said Hirschfield. 

This season, sadly, there have been two children who have died from the flu in the state of Florida.  

According to the Florida Department of Health, children especially those under the age of two and those with certain underlying medical conditions, have a higher risk for complications from influenza infection.

Vaccination has been shown to reduce a child's likelihood of dying from influenza by 60%. 

So how do you keep your little one protected? 

Dr. Hirschfield says while getting the flu vaccine should be your first line of defense, he has a few suggestions if your child is under the weather. 

"The A-B-C's. Airway, breathing and circulation," said Hirschfield.

Dr. Hirschfield's first recommendation is a blue ball syringe. 

"We always use a blue ball syringe and saltwater spray to clean out the babies and infants from birth. It also applies when kids have a respiratory  illness," said Hirschfield. 

Hydration is also key to beating a virus this season. 

"They should be drinking water, eating bananas and having crackers." 

Dr. Hirschfield also suggests a tepid bath to help regulate your child's body temperature. 

"If we are doing all those things in concert, and doing it at an early time point, our recovery times are much less," said Hirschfield.   

Health officials say it's still not too late to protect yourself against various strains of the flu. To find a place to get a flu vaccine, check with the Florida Department of Health vaccine locator

Can Dettol kill coronavirus? Scientists reveal truth as shoppers rush to stockpile cleaning spray - Birmingham Live

Posted: 01 Feb 2020 12:34 AM PST

As the coronavirus outbreak spreads, reports have emerged suggesting a popular household cleaning spray can kill it.

But experts have hit out to rubbish suggestions Dettol can keep you safe from the virus, which emerged in Wuhan, in China.

Scientists have warned that there is no evidence to social media claims Dettol can kill coronavirus, as two cases are confirmed in the UK.

The label at the back of the bottle shows: "Dettol Anti-Bacterial Surface Cleanser is proven to kill viruses: Influenza - Type A H1N1, Human Coronavirus and RSV".

Experts explained that the term 'coronavirus' can be attributed to a group of RNA viruses and the recent outbreak is being referred as the Wuhan-strain, according to  Plymouth Live.

Dr Jonathan Stoye, head of division of virology, The Francis Crick Institute, states the common cold can also fall under the Coronavirus category, which is most likely what the Dettol labels are referring to, not the fatal Wuhan strain.

So perhaps is not the time to start loading up fast on cheap domestic sprays at the supermarket - Dettol in particular.

"It should be made clear that the Wuhan virus is only one of many types of human coronavirus – another is associated with many common colds," Dr Stoye said.

"Presumably, the cold virus has been tested for sensitivity to Dettol."

Professor Jonathon Ball, professor of molecular virology, University of Nottingham said: "There are lots of viruses, coronaviruses included, that contain an outer layer made of oils – or lipids to give them their correct term – and this layer is sensitive to the actions of lots of commonly used disinfectants, including soap.

Coronavirus

"Whilst these disinfectants would not have been tested directly against the novel coronavirus, the virus will have the same kind of lipids in their outer surface, which can be removed by commonly used disinfectants and soaps.

"This is well known and not new."

Dr Bharat Pankhania said at all times, not only during outbreaks, good hand hygiene went a long way towards control and reduction in person-to-person spread of infections.

"I often observe people in public toilets not washing their hands or not washing and drying them properly. It is no wonder that we have outbreaks," said Dr Pankhania, a senior clinical lecturer at the University of Exeter's College of Medicine and Health.

ALBANY — New York will be getting four medical stations each equipped for 250 patients along with a 1,000-bed hospital ship to address the state's dire need to respond to the surge in COVID-19 patients, President Donald Trump said Sunday.

Trump's announcement came as the number of New Yorkers who have been infected by the virus climbed to 15,168.

Trump also announced the federal government will cover the full 100% of the costs of deploying the National Guard in New York, approving a request from Gov. Andrew Cuomo that the 25% fee normally charged to states would be waived.

The downstate region has become the nation's epicenter for the contagion.

Trump said the additional 2,000 hospital beds will arrive in New York "within the next 48 hours," with the medical stations headed for the Javits Convention Center in Manhattan.

Speaking at the White House, Trump said his administration is also extending the approval for emergency aid and National Guard deployment to California and the state of Washington. Those two states and New York represent the three that have seen the greatest threat from COVID-19.

The White House also said it has approved New York's request for federal funding for crisis counseling.

"We're enduring a great national trial, and we will prove that we can meet the moment," Trump said.

The federal decision to approve a disaster declaration for New York is expected to open access to federal funding and emergency protective measures for state, tribal and local governments impacted by the COVID-19 crisis.

Earlier Sunday, Gov. Andrew Cuomo called on the federal government to use existing law to order private companies to manufacture ventilators, masks and hospital gowns needed to deal with an expected surge of hospital admissions connected to the COVID-19 contagion.

The state now pays $7 for surgical masks that used to cost just 85 cents because they have become so scarce, Cuomo said. The state has even purchased sewing machines so it can begin turning out its own masks and hospital gowns, he said.

Cuomo also said he is ordering all New York hospitals to come up with a plan to expand existing capacity by at least 50 percent.

The state now has 53,000 hospital beds. The latest projections suggest the state needs 110,000 beds to deal with the virus, he said.

The governor said the trajectory of the spread suggests between 40 to 80 percent of New Yorkers will end up becoming ill from the virus.

The health threat could continue for another four to nine months, he estimated, though he admitted he has "no crystal ball."

"It's nothing to panic over," the governor said. "Unless you are older with an underlying illness, it's something you are going to resolve. It's going to work its way through society."

"It is going to be OK," Cuomo said. "Life will go on."

According to state data, 70% of the virus-linked fatalities in New York involved persons who were at least 70 years old. Those deaths include 15 people who were at least 90; 36 people who were at least 80 but not yet 90; and 29 people who were at least 70 but not yet 80.

But Cuomo stressed that hundreds of young people have been infected, contending there is a widespread fallacy among younger people that they are immune.

Cuomo argued federal intervention is needed because states are now competing among themselves by bidding up the price for critical equipment, transforming the marketplace into one rife with price-gouging. Increasing the supply of gear needed by hospital workers and first responders.

For state governments, he said, "This is just an impossible situation to manage. If we don't get the equipment, we can lose lives that we could have otherwise saved if we had the right equipment."

The financial impact to the state treasury has been devastating, he said.

"I'm spending money right now we don't have," said Cuomo in making the case for immediate federal aid.

The total number of people who have died in New York — the nation's epicenter for the health crisis — has now reached 114, Cuomo said..

Out of the 15,168 positive cases, 1,974 people have been admitted to hospitals — a rate of 13%, Cuomo said.

Also, beginning Wednesday, all non-critical, elective surgeries across the state will be indefinitely postponed to help hospitals absorb more patients who will need treatment for the virus.

Cuomo also said there are promising indications a combination of drugs used to treat people stricken by malaria has proven to be effective in treating COVID-19. The state, he said, has gained federal approval to begin using those drugs on COVID-19 patients.

The number of infections in the downstate region has climbed exponentially in recent days.

Cuomo, after visiting several neighborhoods in New York City, decried what he called a flaunting of social distancing mandates.

He also acknowledged many New Yorkers have not been able to have their applications for unemployment benefits processed because those services have been overwhelmed even with 700 staffers working on intake of claims.

"We have never seen a volume like this in any state agency, ever," he said.
