N.H. flu deaths increase to 16
Beth Daly, chief of infectious disease surveillance for the state Department of Health and Human Services, said two more deaths were reported since Friday, when the number of adult influenza-related deaths reported to the state stood at 14.
Daly said that the fact that two more deaths were reported doesn't necessarily mean they occurred in the past several days. She said the state learns about flu-related deaths through electronically filed death certificates.
So far, all of the deaths reported have only involved adults.
The state saw a total of 19 deaths reported in 2012.
