North Carolina sees first flu-related death of 2019-20 season: health officials

A North Carolina resident's death marks the state’s first flu-related fatality of the 2019-2020 season, state health officials announced this week.

The resident, who was not identified, was an adult from the central part of the Tar Heel State. He or she died the first week of October, the North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services’ Division of Public Health said in a news release on Thursday.


Additional details were not provided.

“We are very saddened by this death and send condolences to the loved ones of this person,” State Epidemiologist Zack Moore said in a statement. “Flu is a serious illness and in some cases can lead to complications and even result in death, which is why we strongly encourage people to get vaccinated every year.”

North Carolina saw 208 flu deaths during the 2018-19 flu season, state health officials said.

The CDC is reporting two child deaths already this year, so they must be from other states.
