OKLAHOMA CITY -

The Oklahoma State Department of Health reports three deaths due to influenza in the past week has raised the total number this flu season to 61.

The deaths reported Thursday are the first in the state since the middle of March and adds to the record number reported during the flu season that began in September. The previous record of 46 flu deaths in 2009 -- the year the state began tracking the statistic -- was broken in February.

The OSDH says two of the three latest reported deaths occurred in Muskogee and Sequoyah counties.
