At least two New Jersey children have died from influenza in the past few weeks, state Health Department officials confirmed Thursday, as the state continues to see high flu levels in every region.

Few details were released on the children other than that one had significant other underlying medical issues while the other had none. Neither child was part of a local outbreak. One was from the northeast part of the state and the other from the central east.

The deaths come as New Jersey appears to be having a typical flu season so far — the kind often seen before the COVID-19 pandemic — ramping up in November and peaking through the winter months before weakening around late March.

Flu transmission is high in all regions of New Jersey, according to the latest state Health Department report. Of the 110 outbreaks this season, 18 came in the three weeks prior to Feb. 17, the report says.
