Another 50 people have been killed by the flu in California, bringing this season's total flu deaths to 95, according to the state health department. Three of the dead have been children.

In Orange County, four people have been confirmed dead from causes related to the flu, said Dr. Ron Chapman, director of the California Department of Public Health.
