The department notes there were no influenza outbreaks reported in Newfoundland and Labrador so far during this flu season.

Cartter said "We're hearing from hospitals across the state that many are full, they have no extra beds, they're seeing lots of ill patients with influenza like illnesses or confirmed cases of flu".

The death happened earlier this month and is one of 36 flu-related deaths in Kentucky this flu season.

Over the past seven days, the Public Health Agency said there has been a significant increase in people attending GP surgeries with flu-like symptoms.

Data will be available from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) in February about vaccine effectiveness.
