County: two new flu deaths in January

Authorities confirmed this week that two Santa Clara County men died from influenza in January, county public health officials said today.

The deaths were both of homeless men under the age of 65, according to the county's Public Health Department.

Health officials previously said that a 98-year-old woman in the county also died in January from the flu and pneumonia.

County health officials planned to hold a news conference in San Jose this afternoon to discuss the deaths and ways to ward off the influenza virus.
