The count: number of deaths due to the flu in Louisiana during a 'severe season' 

700

If YOU'VE AVOIDED GETTING SICK OVER THE HOLIDAYS, consider yourself lucky — and if it seems like everyone you know is getting sick with the flu, you may be right. "According to the [Centers for Disease Control and Prevention], Louisiana is among the states with the highest confirmed illness through symptoms and laboratory surveillance," the Louisiana Department of Health confirmed last week.

  The LDH also said that nearly 8,000 Louisianans are hospitalized with flu symptoms during a bad season — and the flu spreading in the current season is not a good match for the vaccine, which is developed months in advance.
