Flu Waning in Pa.

The number of cases seems to have peaked.

The latest figures from the Pennsylvania Health Department show that the number of new confirmed influenza cases have dropped in the past two reports.
 
Blair  County, which at one time was reporting the most confirmed cases in the state, now has the third largest number, with Lehigh County taking over second place and Allegheny County remaining in first.

The death rate remains highest in people 50 to 64 years old. The State Health Department says one Pennsylvania child has died of flu-related causes.

Almost all of the confirmed cases are H1N1 or swine flu.
