A brutal flu season is showing no signs of slowing down according to a report from the Minnesota Department Of Health.

According to the Northland's News Center the report shows 37 people have died last week due to the flu. That number increased by 15 people from the week prior, which was a decrease from 33 flu deaths the week before that.
