Feb 9 (Reuters) - One of the worst flu outbreaks in the
United States in nearly a decade worsened last week and will
likely linger for several weeks, causing more deaths, the
Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said on Friday.
Another 10 children were reported to have died of the flu in
the week ending Feb. 3, bringing the total infant mortality so
far this season to 63, Dr. Anne Schuchat, the CDC's acting
director, told reporters. The CDC does not require national
reporting of flu deaths in adults.
