The Real Risks of H3N2
The flu has been all over the news, and for good reason. This year’s dominant strain, H3N2, has historically proven itself to be a greater risk than other strains. The danger here is not that this year’s flu is going to infect more people. But, for those who do get H3N2, they run a higher risk of developing a serious illness.
H3N2 is more likely to lead to dangerous secondary, bacterial infections, such as bronchitis and pneumonia. Pneumonia results in more serious symptoms, more hospitalizations, and more deaths. This strain is harder on the very young (under 5) and older populations (over 65).
To complicate matters, the H3N2 strain has also historically shown it is less susceptible to the flu vaccine than other strains. This year’s vaccine is only 10% effective in preventing the flu.
News reports from all over the United States tell of school closings and hospitals at capacity due to the flu. Some hospitals are setting up beds in conference rooms and hallways. Others are turning people away, even those brought in by ambulance.
