According to the province’s acting Chief Medical Office of Health, Doctor Denis Allard says there were 1,325 reported cases of influenza “A” with 11 flu related deaths this year.

Allard says the flu arrived in the province about two weeks earlier than normal.

He said this year's flu strain was more intense but didn’t last as long. Allard says most of the flu cases this year were H1N1.
