SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- Utah health officials are reporting a decrease in flu activity but another swine flu-related death in the last week.

The Utah Department of Health said Wednesday that a woman between the ages of 50 and 64 from southern Utah is the latest to die with a swine flu-related illness.

That brings the number of deaths in Utah related to the H1N1 virus to 20 this year.

The department also says there have been 770 hospitalizations associated with both the seasonal flu and swine flu this season.

The department says the overall number of flu cases has decreased for the fourth consecutive week.
