And, Sherlock says, "It's not too late to get a flu shot".
The most recent statistics show there has been 512 laboratory-confirmed cases of influenza A in Manitoba, the most common flu virus in Canada, since Sept 1. And a million people were hospitalized.
Every year in the US, more than 200,000 people are hospitalized from flu complications and the flu causes about 12,000 to 56,000 deaths each year, data shows.
While parts of the country are struggling with a tougher than usual flu season, especially for young children, Ottawa so far seems to be experiencing a less severe season - so far. During last year's season, an estimated 80,000 people died - the highest number in 40 years.
The flu season is considered to run from October 1 to about May 20.
