Officials with Dallas County Health and Human Services (DCHHS) are reporting the county’s first known adult flu-related death for the 2013-2014 flu season.
The worst of the flu season appears to be over. The number of states reporting intense or widespread flu dropped again last week, except in Texas where flu activity was still high.
A flu epidemic continues to hit the United States, according to newly released statistics from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. For the week of January 6-12, 8.2 percent of all deaths were tied to influenza and pneumonia.
