        NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) – At least five Tennesseans have died from the flu so far during the 2017-2018 flu season, according to the Tennessee Department of Health.

                        Two more Hamblen flu deaths reported

                        Hamblen County coroner Eddie Davis said Hamblen County suffered its second and third deaths caused by the influenza virus Friday.

                        The first came early Friday morning while the second died about mid-morning, he said. The first Hamblen County flu death of 2018 happened last Friday.


                        Davis, who declined to release details about the three victims citing privacy concerns, said that the one man and two women were all adults under the age of 50. Davis said two had underlying health conditions but those would not have placed their lives in an imminently life-threatening condition if not for the flu.

                          UT Medical Center: 10 flu deaths in East Tennessee

                          KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WATE) - Ten people have died due to the flu this season in East Tennessee, according to the University of Tennessee Medical Center.
                          The hospital says the victims had other conditions as well.

                          These deaths are not a part of the state's report due to guidelines requiring reports of only children and pregnant patients.

                          In Tennessee, 6 children have died and one woman who was pregnant.
