    UPDATED AT 12 P.M.

    An Oregon child died earlier this month from the flu, which is raging across the state.

    Public health authorities have not released information about the case, which has not yet been posted on the state's weekly flu roundup. Dr. Ann Thomas, a state public health physician, told The Oregonian/OregonLive the child was younger than 5. She provided no more details. One pediatric death from the flu is not unusual in Oregon though there were none last year.

      Flu death confirmed in Lane County; public health staff tracking several outbreaks

      EUGENE, Ore. - A resident of an assisted living facility has died from the flu in Lane County, public health officials confirm.

      Jason Davis with Lane County Public Health said there has been one death at an assisted living facility, where public health officials are tracking an outbreak of the flu. He said the victim was an older individual.

      Davis said it can be difficult for public health officials to track flu deaths unless they are part of a known outbreak.

      The county is also examining a high school reporting a 14 percent absentee rate for illness, although the flu has not been confirmed as the cause.

      By comparison to last year, Davis said the county saw outbreaks numbering the double digits. In January 2017, 11 people died from the flu in 11 days in Lane County.

      State officials have said two children - one under 5, the other under 10 - have died from the flu so far this season in Oregon.

          Gresham mom, 36, gets flu; days later she dies


          Tandy Harmon was vibrant, cheerful and healthy. At 36, the Gresham mom was rarely sick.

          But 10 days ago, she started feeling ill. It was a Sunday. The next day, she stayed home from her job as a bartender at Bradford's Sports Lounge in Southeast Portland.


          She figured it was the flu, said her boyfriend, Steven Lundin.


          By that Wednesday, she ended up in intensive care at Legacy Emanuel Medical Center in North Portland, diagnosed with the flu, pneumonia and a staph infection, Lundin said.


          Two days later, the single mother of two, died, leaving family and friends reeling.


          "That's all it took was a couple of days," Lundin said. "I can't believe it."...
