RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) — State health officials say five more people have died from the flu in North Carolina, bringing the state total for the season to 27.
An infant who died Monday is not included because the child died two days after the period when deaths are counted. That death will be included in next week’s figures.
The state began counting flu deaths since October. Since then, 13 people from age 25 to 49 have died of flu, along with nine who were between 50 and 64. Five people age 65 or older also have died, more than doubling the number in the age group from last week.
High levels of flu activity are expected over the coming weeks as flu season typically peaks during January and February.
