SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- The Utah Department of Health is reporting another death related to the swine flu.

The total number of reported H1N1-related deaths this flu season is now 26.

The department says 865 people have been hospitalized due to swine flu and seasonal flu this season. That's 4 more than were reported the week before.

The department says the influenza-like illness rate is "substantially" above normal.

The report was issued on Wednesday for the week of Dec. 20-26. Officials say flu incidents are probably being underreported because of the holidays.
