TIPPECANOE COUNTY, Ind. (WLFI) — Tippecanoe and surrounding counties have the highest reported flu-like illnesses in the state of Indiana.

The State Department of Health is out with its weekly influenza report for the first week of January.

According to the report, District Four, which covers Tippecanoe, Carroll, Cass, Clinton, Montgomery, Fountain, Warren, Benton and White counties, has the most reported flu illnesses.

That's measured by hospital emergency room visits.

More than 8 percent of all emergency room visits reported in District 4 are people with influenza-like illnesses.

That's a two-percent jump from the previous week.

IU Health Arnett has had no report of deaths related to the flu.

As News 18 reported earlier this month, numbers up to Dec. 31 showed 25 flu-related deaths in the state.

The new numbers through the first week of January are now at 50.

That's since October.

The state health department only lists the number of flu deaths in a county if that number is at five or more.

Currently, only Shelby County is listed.
