Worst flu season in a decade could be subsiding

Posted: Updated:

WASHINGTON STATE - Officials say one of Washington state's worst flu seasons appears to be subsiding.
 
The Department of Health says influenza had killed 207 people in the state as of Feb. 11, making this season the worst in a decade. 
 
Most of this season's deaths involved older people with underlying conditions like heart disease, respiratory disease and diabetes. King County has seen the 55 flu-related deaths, the most in the state.
 
Seattle and King County Public Health Officers say it looks like the season peaked in late January and has been improving since then.
