Number of Flu-Related Deaths in El Paso Climbs to 19

The City of El Paso Department of Public Health (DPH) reports a new flu-related death increasing the total number to 19 so far this season.

The latest victim is a woman in her 50’s with known underlying medical conditions.

A total of 9,226 flu cases have been reported to the DPH this season compared to 1,211 cases at this time last year.

Health Department officials say while it appears the flu season has reached its peak, they continue to urge medical providers to test for the flu and to prescribe antivirals when possible. Residents are encouraged to get vaccinated and practice the “4 C’s.”

  1. CLEAN – Wash your hands often. Scrub hands for at least 30 seconds with soap and water, or use an alcohol-based hand cleaner.
  2. COVER – Cover your cough. Use a tissue to cover your mouth and nose when you cough or sneeze. Don’t have a tissue? The crook of your elbow will do.
  3. CONTAIN – Contain germs by steering clear of others who are sick. If you’re sick, stay home until you’re well.
  4. CALL – Call or see a doctor if you or your child has a fever greater than 100 degrees.

For more information on the programs and services provided by the Department of Public Health, call 2-1-1 or visit www.EPHealth.com  or www.EPSalud.com.
