        Of the deaths so far this season, state officials linked 82 cases to influenza A and 25 to influenza B, according to the report, which is the department’s latest compilation of flu data.

                    In Washington, 200 people have died of flu so far, according to the state Department of Health - and that's lower than the 2016-17 season. By this time last year, 278 people had died of flu in Washington. Snohomish, Spokane, and King counties have the highest flu death totals at around 30 each this season.
