Special to SEGAZINE
The Georgia Department of Public Health announced late Wednesday it has lab confirmation of two flu-related deaths in the state. These are the first confirmed flu-related deaths in Georgia this flu season. Both of the deceased were adults.
While the flu level is still considered minimal in Georgia, DPH is reporting increases in flu activity statewide, including hospitalizations. Symptoms of the flu include cough, runny nose, sore throat and fever. One of the most pronounced flu symptoms is an overall feeling of achiness and malaise that comes on quickly.
