Adjust font size:

Texas health authorities on Thursday reported three more deaths and 462 new cases of A/H1N1 flu virus, bringing the death toll to 13 and the total number of confirmed cases to 2,981 in the southwest U.S. state.

The Federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) on Thursday confirmed a total of 2,981 cases in Texas, but only 10 deaths of the A/H1N1 virus in the state.

The Department of State Health Services (DSHS) said that, due to reporting schedules, DSHS case and death counts usually will be higher and more current than those on the CDC website.

The DSHS also said the 2,981 cases of A/H1N1 flu have been confirmed in 95 of the state's 254 counties.

Nationwide, the CDC on Thursday reported combined 27,717 confirmed cases of A/H1N1 flu in the 50 states plus the District of Columbia and U.S. territory Puerto Rico and U.S. Virgin Islands, with 127 deaths in 22 states.
