The Ohio Department of Health reports a three-year-old boy has died due from illness related to the flu. The young patient died in Highland County, east of Cincinnati.

The organization reported that it's now widespread throughout the state.

During last year's flu season, the ODH confirmed there were six deaths related to pediatric influenza, WLWT reported.

Influenza cases typically begin to increase in October and the season can run as late as May.

The best way to prevent the spread of flu is to get a flu shot and wash your hands frequently.

The flu has hit Tennessee in a major way, according to the Centers for Disease Control.

According to the state health department, the number of flu-associated hospitalizations reported in OH so far this flu season is tracking below the five-year average.
