6 flu deaths reported in Kentucky

The Kentucky Department of Public Health has reported six flu related deaths this flu season.

Five adults and one child have died.

Public health officials say the very young and the very old are the most vulnerable to the flu.

Health officials say this year is different than most, because the flu in Kentucky is considered widespread, and it's been widespread for four weeks.

On average, the flu runs its course in seven to ten days.
