County reports 43 flu-related deaths so far this season

Thursday, Feb. 20—San Diego County Health and Human Services Agency reported yesterday that 43 people in the county had died so far this season of flu-related causes. They ranged in age from 26 to 100 and most had underlying medical conditions, according to the county report.

While the number of cases of the flu have dropped the past three weeks, county health officials said the flu season typically lasts through March and early April, so people should continue taking preventive measures.

The H1N1 flu virus contributed to the death of Mountain View Community Church’s senior pastor, Charles Youngkin, last week. A memorial service will be held at the church, 1191 Meadowbrook Way, at 2 p.m. on Saturday.
