North Carolina health officials say six people died from complications of the flu last week, helping to raise the death toll for the 2019-20 season to 41.
The Winston-Salem Journal reports the death toll includes two deaths from previous weeks.
The N.C. Department of Health and Human Services cautions the weekly report count does not represent all flu-associated deaths in the state because many go undiagnosed or unreported.
