The Minnesota Health Department reported three more flu deaths in the last week, bringing the season’s total number of fatalities closer to 200. The latest figures show 197 deaths in Minnesota due to influenza.
Hospitals are at capacity, others are keeping visitors out. This season will go down as a bad one for the flu in Minnesota, but for at least one family, it will always be the most heartbreaking.
The Minnesota Department of Health announced 12 more people in the state died last week as a result of the flu, bringing the season’s total to 148 deaths.
Bad as it may seem, this flu season doesn’t rank among the most severe.
Minnesota health officials are reporting 23 flu deaths in the past week in one of the state’s biggest outbreaks in years.
Pharmacies and clinics are being inundated by customers rushing in to get their flu vaccinations. Now, south Minnesota hospitals are imposing visitor restrictions to combat the outbreak.
