                Four Flu Deaths Reported In Texas As Season Gets Early Start

                Reporting Arezow Doost

                DALLAS (CBSDFW.COM) – The Dallas County Health Department is reporting its first flu-related death.

                Officials say a woman in her 60s with underlying health conditions recently passed away.

                It was the fourth flu-related death in Texas. The other three, including one in Tarrant County, have been children.

                Flu season is off to an early start, and it could be a bad one. “This year we are starting early and its climbing quickly,” says Dr. Donald Murphey, an Infectious Disease Pediatrician at Cook Children’s in Fort Worth “Last year this time we really didn’t have much flu. Last year in general was a mild season.”
