People are dying of the flu around the Bay Area, and Patch readers have been checking coverage all day to learn more about the disease and how they can prevent it. In addition, the deadly “knockout game” has come to Los Gatos, and Half Moon Bay High School was on lockdown Thursday morning after a man in a stolen car from Oakland ran from police and carjacked a woman in Half Moon Bay.

Here’s more on that flu, from Los Gatos Patch:

“Two recent deaths in Marin County have been linked to the flu and another two in Santa Cruz County are suspected of being flu-related, public health officials said today.”

“A 63-year-old man with significant chronic medical conditions died on Dec. 27, and a previously healthy 48-year-old woman died of an influenza-related complication on Jan. 6, Marin County Public Health Officer Dr. Matt Willis said.”

“Both were hospitalized in intensive care, and neither had received a flu vaccine, Willis said.”
