    A report released earlier this week by the Centers for Disease Control showed a number of states, including West Virginia and Virginia, reporting widespread influenza increases. Health officials in neighboring Southwest Virginia also have reported widespread influenza activity.

    In the Commonwealth of Virginia, state public health officials have confirmed two deaths linked to influenza. The flu deaths reported by the department were pediatric cases, according to the Virginia Department of Health.

    Most of the influenza cases reported in Mercer County have been either H1N1 or Influenza A, according to Rickman.
