    Eighth flu-related death reported in Tarrant County

    While a series of influenza cases continues to drop, Tarrant County has reported a eighth flu-related death.

    Six of a deaths tested certain for Type A influenza, though two, including a latest one, tested certain for Type B.

    Type B typically doesn?t means widespread outbreaks like Type A, and it?s mostly found in places such as schools and nursing homes, pronounced Russ Jones, arch epidemiologist for Tarrant County Public Health.

    H1N1, a widespread aria this year, is a Type A strain.

                14 deaths linked to the flu in El Paso

                The Department of public health for the city of El Paso announced today that the total number of deaths related to the flu this season has reached 17, with 14 of the cases related to the strain of influenza A H1N1. The two deaths reported this week are two middle-aged men who were suffering from any chronic condition. While the number of flu cases continues downward, these two recent deaths add up total deaths in El Paso at the same level that was reached during the 2009 H1N1 flu pandemic.'During the season of 2009 - 2010 were recorded 17 deaths related to the flu. Now that we have reached that same number, it is very important to remind the public that much has changed in the course of the last few years. We now have a vaccine against this strain, which has proven to be very effective, and the medical community now knows what is the best way to treat those who have been infected', said Fernando Gonz?lez, Chief epidemiologist. 'We need to continue focusing on prevention and receive the flu shot this season and the next,' he said.
