Health officials in Albany and Warren counties have reported H1N1 flu deaths.

In Albany, County Health Commissioner James Crucetti says an adolescent who died of complications related to a long-term illness last week was also confirmed to have H1N1 influenza.

Patricia Auer, Warren County's health services director, says an adult died at Glens Falls Hospital on Saturday as a result of the infection. It was the first swine flu death in that county.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reported Monday that the flu is widespread in 48 states and hospitalizations and deaths continue to increase.
