Minnesota Confirms 2 More Flu-Related Deaths

ST. PAUL (AP) — Minnesota has confirmed two more flu-related deaths, bringing the state’s influenza death toll to 190 so far this season.

The Minnesota Department of Health says the two deaths were confirmed last week.

But the flu season continues to wind down in Minnesota. No nursing homes and no schools reported confirmed outbreaks of the flu last week.

The number of people hospitalized with laboratory-confirmed influenza rose slightly last week, with 17 cases compared with 13 the previous week. Since the start of the flu season, 3,061 people have been hospitalized, but the weekly rate has sharply dropped off since peaking in January.
