State health officials say there have been at least 523 pneumonia and flu deaths in Arizona so far during the current flu season, adding to over 200 more than at the same time last season.

The number of confirmed flu cases in Arizona so far this season is up by more than 750% compared to last year. KNAU’s Justin Regan has more. 


Health officials say four people are recovering from the first confirmed flu cases of the season in Coconino County. As Arizona Public Radio’s Ryan Heinsius reports, it’s an early start for the spread of the potentially dangerous virus.
