From Minnesota Department of Health, Jan. 23: The Minnesota Department of Health (MDH) has reported the first pediatric flu death of the 2019-20 season. That brings the total deaths from influenza statewide to 31 for the season. After a few weeks when the number of new outbreaks in schools were relatively low, the third week of 2020 saw 113 new outbreaks (compared to 32 outbreaks the previous week). It points to the fact that the flu season is far from over, and it is not too late to get the flu vaccine. Get full weekly influenza statistics.
