New, Deadlier Flu Strain on Tap for Winter ATLANTA (DPI) A new md deadlier flu strain is ex- pected to hit the United States his winter, according to the Center for Disease Control. Dr. Larry Corey of the viral diseases branch of CDC he Port Chalmers flu said will spread over much of the nation after first being identified and solated in New Zealand. Corey said the Port Chalmers .ariety was the Type A strain of flu virus which is deadlier nan the Type B flu prevalent n this country last winter. He said its effects were worse be- cause it more often hits adults, compared to Type B which mainly afflicts children who are more able to resist the disease. He said several eases of the Port Chalmers disease were solaled in Georgia and Missis- sippi during the summer, and t is expected to appear in the Southeast, Midwest, Southwest and Pacific regions this winter. Relatively mild outbreaks should occur in the mid-Atlan- and northeast regions, he said, because both had out- breaks of Type A flu last win- ter. But despite the possibility of an increase in flu -related deaths. Corey said, only about one in every five in the "high risk" group Ihe elderly, very young and clironically ill is xpecteel Io get flu shots. He saiel flu vaccine is be- tween 70 and 80 percent effec- tive anel has been updated to offer protection against Ihe Port Chalmers strain.
