23 hours ago

South Dakota had its third influenza-related death last week, but flu activity here remained less than it was in three surrounding states, according to the South Dakota Department of Health.
Influenza activity remained at "regional" levels in South Dakota, while Minnesota, Iowa and Wyoming, along with 26 other states, all reported widespread influenza activity.
One new death was reported in Brown County, bringing the total number of flu-related deaths this season to three. The 2012-13 flu season started earlier and harder than last year, with 279 lab-confirmed cases to date compared to five cases at this time in 2011.
