  • Minnesota's death toll from influenza this season has climbed to 176.
    The Minnesota Department of Health said Thursday seven more influenza-related deaths were confirmed last week.
    Minnesota Public Radio News (http://bit.ly/YumQPd) reports the 176 deaths are the most the state has recorded in at least five flu seasons. Comparisons before that time are limited due to a change in the way the state Health Department calculates flu deaths.
    Flu illnesses continue to decrease. Last week 37 people were hospitalized in Minnesota. One long-term care facility reported a flu outbreak, as did two schools.
