A 5-year-old boy in the Verde Valley died this month after complications from influenza.
Yavapai County Community Health Services did not identify the child but confirmed that his death was the first influenza-related death in the county in three years. The risk to others is minimal in this specific case, according to the agency.
“At this time, [Community Health Services] has no evidence that anyone is at increased risk of serious illness or death as a result of being exposed to this case,” the county reported in a statement last week.
