More Deaths Reported As Flu Continues To Grip North Texas

The Dallas County Health and Human Services reports 11 flu related deaths so far this season, including the death of a 37-year old Oak Cliff woman on January 3.

"During the period while Methodist Dallas is re-routing patients, we encourage anyone having non-emergent symptoms to seek care at an urgent care facility or through their primary care physician", a statement read.

Six of the patients were from Dallas and the seventh was from Garland.

- The Dallas County health department says seven more people have died because of the flu. Both Baylor Medical Center and Parkland Hospital have seen exponential increase in the number of people they're treating for the flu.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says the flu season nationwide is far worse than what they saw previous year at this time. That brings the total for this flu season to 18.

Last year, 12 states had widespread cases, but this year there are 46. District spokesman Clint Bond said, "We know when it comes down to it we might have a lot of absences, but this is an attempt to minimize that". This only involves patients that have non-emergency symptoms. "If you have flu-like symptoms, please help protect yourself and others by staying home from work or school and calling your doctor as soon as possible to discuss anti-viral medication".
