More flu-related deaths this year than pandemic in 2009
Number of deaths rises to 16 in Saskatchewan
There are now 16 flu-related deaths in Saskatchewan this flu season, which is more than the 15 people who died during the pandemic in 2009.
It's not known what role influenza played in the deaths. Three quarters of the people who died had underlying health conditions.
All 16 people who died were not vaccinated.
Officials tell CBC there is still vaccine available.
