Flathead County among the leaders in Montana flu cases

DPHHS graphic (HELENA)- Flathead County is now among the leading counties in Montana with flu cases, as the outbreak of influenza continues to soar statewide. 

The latest report from the Montana Department of Health and Human Services shows how the numbers of cases have been climbing since the holidays. Flathead, Gallatin and Yellowstone counties show the highest numbers of new influenza cases through January 6th. Flathead County leads the way with 94-new, confirmed cases reported to the state. 

However, DPHHS says the flu is now widespread across the state, with all but three counties reporting at least some cases through last week. 

Over 230-people have been hospitalized this flu season and a dozen people have died from flu-related complications.
