    The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has confirmed four more cases of antiviral-resistant influenza in Delaware, bringing the total to 10. Two people have died from this strain, which has been found in residents of all ages.
    WHYY’s Mark Eichmann reports the Delaware Division of Public Health and CDC are investigating the cases. Part of that research will include increased testing, the results of which will be used for recommendations next year.
