New flu deaths reported in Napa, Contra Costa and Monterey counties
January 16, 2014, 05:00 AM Bay City News Service

The death toll from this year’s flu season continued to rise Wednesday with reports from health officials of three new flu-related deaths in the Bay Area and two in Monterey County.

The recent reports brought the total number of flu-related deaths reported in the Bay Area to 21, most of them linked to the H1N1 strain of the virus, also known as the “swine flu.”

That figure is probably low, however, because the California Department of Health only requires hospitals to report deaths of patients under 65 years old.

Napa County reported its first confirmed flu-related death today, an 84-year-old man with multiple medical issues, according to county spokeswoman Elizabeth Emmett.
