    Washington state flu deaths reach 109 for current season
    Originally published January 26, 2018 at 8:10 pm Updated January 26, 2018 at 8:37 pm


    The number of fatalities, according to a report released Friday, is seemingly on track with last year's rate at this time. The country, meanwhile, is grappling with what is on track to be the worst flu season in nearly a decade.

    The number of flu-related deaths across Washington state this season reached 109 last week, up from 29 earlier this month, according to tallies by the state Department of Health.

    This season?s fatalities, according to a report released Friday, are seemingly on track with last year?s rate at this time. The country, meanwhile, is grappling with what is on track to be the worst flu season in nearly a decade, with people seeking care at a rate rivaling the 2009 swine flu pandemic.

    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.
