Indiana flu deaths rise to 37; hits ages 25-64

INDIANAPOLIS – State health officials say at least seven more people have died in Indiana from flu-related illnesses as this year’s strains are hitting some young and middle-aged adults harder than usual.

The Indiana State Department of Health said in its weekly report that the state has had 37 total deaths so far this flu season. That’s 10 fewer than the same time last year.

But officials said nearly two-thirds of this season’s deaths have been among those between the ages of 25 and 64. About 80 percent of last year’s deaths at this time were people older than 65.

Health officials said Marion and St. Joseph counties are the only ones in the state with five or more flu deaths this season.
