St. Paul, Minn. (AP) — The state's death toll from H1N1 flu has increased to 58, after state officials completed their investigations of three deaths in October and November.
The Minnesota Department of Health released its weekly update of flu statistics on Wednesday. It shows flu infections of all kinds remain only sporadic in the state.
There were no outbreaks of flu-like illness in long-term care facilities last week and only one in schools. There were no new confirmed cases in the state's hospitals.
In addition to the 58 confirmed deaths from H1N1, there have been six deaths from unspecified flus, and one death from a confirmed case of the seasonal flu since the pandemic began.
