COVINGTON, KY (FOX19) -

The Northern Kentucky Health Department says two additional deaths have been reported as a result of the influenza virus.

That brings the total number of flu deaths in the region this year to eight, with the most recent being a Campbell County man and a child.

Recent flu activity in Northern Kentucky shows that the spread of the virus may be slowing down, but is still proving serious for some.

A total of 40 cases were reported for the week ending April 13, compared to 78 the previous week.

Through April 13, 2013, a total of 3,428 cases of flu have been reported in Northern Kentucky. This makes the 2012-2013 season the highest ever.
