Lehigh Valley Health Network now says a death they thought was flu-related was not.

SALISBURY TWP., Pa. -

Lehigh Valley Health Network now says a death they thought was flu-related was not.

The hospital says the death of an infant earlier this month appeared to be flu-related at least initially.

It was the region's first flu-related death of the season.

But now the hospital says that's not the case.

Test results came back negative for the flu so it won't be considered a flu-related death.
