COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Ohio health officials are ready to provide new data on flu-related hospitalizations as an unusually severe season winds down.
Last week the Ohio Department of Health reported 119 flu-related hospitalizations from Feb. 15 to Feb. 21, down from 130 a week earlier.
Those figures brought the season's total hospitalizations to 7,852. The state doesn't report adult flu deaths but has recorded the deaths of six children. Individual county health departments have reported several adult deaths.
