DE officials report 3 more flu-related deaths”

More than 200 people have been hospitalized for the flu.

The 2017-2018 flu season had 185 reported child deaths nationwide and about 80 percent of those kids didn't receive a flu shot.

At the same point a year ago, there were 1,289 laboratory-confirmed cases of influenza and 297 hospitalizations, according to DPH. Tulsa County reports four flu-related deaths and 134 hospitalizations.

Typically people are far less likely to get the flu in summer compared with the high-risk season between May and October.

This flu season started weeks earlier than expected. "And again, every flu season's different", said Dr. Richard Hong, medical director for the Division of Public Health.

In North Dakota, 1,810 laboratory-identified cases of influenza have been reported this season to the health department, with majority being children under the age of 10.

In total, 117 serious cases of flu have been registered, with 112 patients placed in intensive care.
