Number Of Oklahoma H1N1 Deaths Increases To 39
OKLAHOMA COUNTY -- New numbers about the H1N1 virus in Oklahoma are out Thursday, bring the number of Oklahoma flu deaths since September to 39.
The good news is that fewer people are showing up at doctors' offices with flu-like symptoms, and of the tests doctors run, fewer are coming back positive for the virus.
But the health department says four more H1N1 deaths were reported this week: one each in Cherokee, Rogers, Garfield and Kay Counties.
One death that had been counted in Oklahoma County has been removed from the list because further testing showed it was not the result of the H1N1 virus.
