Several of the deaths were due to Influenza B, another was due to an invasive form of Strep.

The Group A Strep (GAS) has been detected in the Valley this year. We've only had one reported case. It became a reportable condition back in 1999.

Every year, Group A Strep causes 2,000 deaths in the US and most of the cases affect children under the age of 15.
