Flu season is not over yet

A 91-year-old woman has become the fourth person in Delaware to die of influenza during the current flu season. 

 

The Division of Public Health says she had been in the hospital and had underlying medical conditions.  People with chronic underlying conditions such as asthma, heart disease, diabetes and obesity are at a higher risk of complications from influenza.
