The Indiana State Department of Health says Hoosiers are battling a widespread distribution of influenza-like illnesses. By Feb. 24, a total of 244 Indiana residents have died this season from what is believed to be flu-related illness.  

Over the course of the week between Feb. 17 and Feb. 24, four northern Indiana counties suffered enough influenza-associated deaths to put them over the threshold for reporting.

DeKalb, Elkhart, Noble, and St. Joseph counties all now have over five influenza-associated deaths. Adams, Grant and Allen counties were already over the threshold. Allen County now has 20 influenza-associated deaths, up two from the week before.
