We encountered an issue signing you up.Please try again Article content Li said death “is an infrequent outcome due to influenza infections.” Children, and especially young children, are at an elevated risk of severe outcomes due to flu infection, Li said, as are the elderly, those with chronic health conditions, and pregnant people.The hospital did not release the child’s name, age or any other information about the child.Li said local health unit data suggests the flu “is the primary respiratory virus circulating in the (Leeds, Grenville and Lanark) region at this time.
“Because we have not had significant flu circulation in the past two winters, people may be more susceptible to influenza infection than usual.We are currently seeing more cases of flu in the LGL region, and earlier in the year than in typical winter respiratory seasons,” Li said.The flu vaccine is “strongly recommended,” Li said for everyone over six months.Estimates vary, from hundreds to thousands of Canadians dying from flu infections per year, Li said, depending on the severity of the flu season.Recommended from Editorial.
Tested positive for the flu. Died of something else but we won't tell you. But get your flu shot. Great article 🤔 After testing positive does that mean they died from it or they died from something else BTW National Post, « pregnant people » as you describe them in this article are called women. It’s pretty simple, and basic biology.
Sad... but not news. I see the headline has been changed from the original inflammatory one. Hmmmmm Vaxxed and boosted? What wasn't influenza wiped with phony covid ?
