LAS VEGAS -- The number of people in Clark County who have died from the flu now stands at 22, according to the Southern Nevada Health District.
The district reports there have been 489 confirmed cases of influenza in the Las Vegas valley with 259 people requiring hospitalization.
The most prevalent strain of the flu this year is the H1N1 strain which caused problems in 2009.
Some medical providers say they often deal with Hispanic patients who are afraid to seek medical care. It's hoped the opening of a new medical clinic will change that.
