There has been an increase in the number of deaths causing due to flu. 80,000+ deaths have been recorded in the last decade which is the highest number in the last 4 decades that was recorded.
The child who lost his life was a healthy baby before he had the flu. The other details are not been disclosed due to confidential matters.
This is the first case of a healthy baby being declared dead as the immunity in such babies is a way to strong to bear any bacterial problems. Taking into account with additional pieces of information not being circulated around by the health associates, things are being kept too much secretive around with the workers too.
