ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — Minnesota health officials confirm two more flu-related deaths this season.

The deaths were confirmed last week. That pushes Minnesota’s flu death toll since last October to 188.

The Minnesota Department of Health says 13 people were hospitalized with laboratory-confirmed influenza last week. Since the start of the flu season, 3,041 people have been hospitalized, but the weekly rate has sharply dropped off since peaking in January.

No nursing homes and only one school reported confirmed outbreaks of the flu last week.
