DOVER, Del. (AP) - Public health officials say the number of flu-related deaths in Delaware has climbed to 14.
Officials on Thursday reported two new deaths this week and 1,526 confirmed flu cases so far this flu season.
All but one of the deaths involved people over the age of 65, with the other victim being 53. All 14 had underlying conditions, and five were in long-term care facilities.
The number of deaths exceeds the total for the previous three flu seasons combined, and is more than double the six deaths reported last season.
