Number Of Flu-Related Deaths Reported In Oklahoma Hits 90

Posted: Updated:
OKLAHOMA CITY -

The number of flu-related deaths in Oklahoma has risen to 90, according to the Oklahoma Department of Health.

The number includes two new deaths in the past week.

Last week, the OSDH said there had been 84 deaths related to the flu since the season began. It said that was a jump due to late reports received on deaths that occurred mostly at the end of January through the beginning of February.

The department released the latest numbers Thursday showing 2,273 people have been hospitalized due to the flu since September 2016. Twenty-one of those hospitalizations occurred in the past week.

The data says Tulsa County has seen 20 deaths from the flu. Oklahoma County has recorded 13 deaths so far this season.

According to the OSDH, only four counties -- Cimarron, Ellis, Harmon and Rogers Mills -- have not recorded any flu hospitalizations or deaths.
