203 people in Arkansas have died from the flu this season, according to the latest report issued Tuesday by the state Department of Health. That’s an increase of six since last week.
Dr. Jennifer Dillaha, medical director for immunizations, says while the flu is winding down for the season, the death toll is expected to keep rising.
"We’ll continue to likely get more deaths reported as the reporting process continues to go through the steps needed," she said.
Overall, reports from Arkansas’s 75 counties show fewer people are being impacted.
