Public health officials remind the public that there are several weeks remaining in the flu season, and the number of hospitalizations and deaths will continue to increase.

Meanwhile, officials say the number of confirmed flu cases appears to be leveling off.

DE public health officials say the death toll from the flu has risen to 28, tying the record death total from three years ago.

"We strongly encourage everyone to continue practicing the important preventive measures we have been promoting including staying home when you're sick, calling your doctor at the first signs of flu-like illness, washing your hands frequently, and covering coughs and sneezes", Rattay said. And the proportion of outpatient visits for flu-like illness in Georgia during the same period dipped to 6.5 percent, from 11.9 percent.
