            RENO, Nev. (KOLO) It's been a bad flu season--both nationwide and in Washoe County. Surveillance numbers show 15 people have died so far from the disease in Washoe County alone.


            "All of the individuals who have passed away from the flu were at risk, or a higher risk, I should say, of severe flu or flu-related complications. Either because of their age or some underlying medical conditions. 14 of those 15 individuals have been age 65 or older," says Kerry Chalkley with the Washoe County Health District.

            A total of 3570 people have tested positive to the disease in Washoe County.

                  Jenna Libidinsky went to the doctor Jan. 25 and four more times over the next eight days.

                  Doctors and nurses prescribed antibiotics, an inhaler, steroids and cough syrup.

                  But the 24-year-old Las Vegas woman just wasn’t getting any better.

                    This flu season is shaping up to be one of the worst on record, both in flu cases and deaths. Last week, pneumonia and influenza accounted for more than 10% of deaths in the United States.

                    "This was about the worst I could see in terms of influenza activity looking this widespread all at once," Dr. Randall Todd, Director of Epidemiology & Public Health Preparedness at the Washoe County Health District said.

                    151,983 people have had the flu in the U.S. during this flu season, and the flu has killed 10,948. There have been 4,066 confirmed cases in Washoe County, killing 19 residents. Flu season runs from the 40th week of the year to the 20th week of the next year, basically from October to May. The Washoe County flu deaths may not seem like a large number, but it is compared to previous years. "So that's 19 through week five," Todd said. "Last year, for the entire year going from week 40 through week 20, we had only eight."
