Two more women have died from the H1N1 flu in Utah, bringing total Utah deaths from swine flu to 16, according to Lisa Rosetta from the Salt Lake Tribune.

The health department said infection rates are continuing to drop. Though the number of deaths from this strain of flu is well below normal levels caused by seasonal influenza, officials continue to worry because HINI is spreading in a younger population and outside of typical flu season.
