First deadly flu case reported in MA

Posted: Updated:

Boston announced Friday it's had the first flu-related death of the season.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says another 10 states reported widespread seasonal flu activity last week.

That brings the total number of states reporting widespread activity to 35.

The designation addresses the spread of the flu, not its severity.

According to the CDC, flu season typically peaks in Jan. or Feb.
