  •  "4th flu-related child death Confirmed in MI..." (5+ / 0-)

    lab tests have confirmed the second influenza-related death of a teenager in central Michigan —

    ...the fourth pediatric death this yearas flu season continues to sweep the state earlier than usual...

    ...The 15-year-old boy who died had no other health issues, Minicuci said.

    ...A parent of another student also has died, the district’s superintendent...said in a letter to parents and the community Monday...

    It’s difficult to know precisely how many people die each year from the flu, in part, because states aren’t required to report adult deaths.

    However, flu-related deaths of anyone younger than 18 must be reported to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention...

    This should throw up a red flag for parents. This isn’t just the very, very young or those with poor immune systems,” Minicuci said.
