More Swine Flu Deaths In NC

The swine flu continues to claim live here in North Carolina.

The State Health Department says two people have died from the H1N1 virus in the past week. Eleven people have died in the state since the outbreak began in the spring. In addition to two swine flu deaths in the past seven days, 19 more people have been hospitalized. State Health Departments are no longer reporting every single swine flu case, just hospitalizations and deaths.

We are still a few weeks away from anyone being able to get the vaccine. Health officials recommend people get the seasonal flu vaccine in the meantime, and continue to wash your hands frequently.
