This has been really scaring us around here for a few days.
We've had a similar number of young children die of "flu like" simptons here in west Michigan lately.

I am very nervous. My three year old has flu-like symptoms right now. I'm in NC.

Why is it only affecting young children? If it was some kind of chemical attack you would think it would also affect the elderly and affirm. What is the normal death rate from the flu?

It's been scaring me, too, for all of you.
I pray that Jesus surround your children with Angels of Protection. Amen.

Hi I'm from suburban Philadelphia. My Step Daughter has bad flu. Doctor called it the Hatboro plague. We live very close to Willow Grove Naval Air Station. No deaths in this area that I know of. Keep safe
who previously had been fairly healthy.
I wonder what they mean by "fairly healthy" and what is that flu like for kids who were very healthy? We had some kind of flu here but maybe it's not the same one and a couple of my kids had it for a couple days.

Reading this, one question come to mind. Were these kids allowed to stay home while they were sick?
It seems to me that many, many parents still ship their kids off to school or day care while the kids are contagious, thus perpetuating the illnesses. A lot of times this is so the parents don't have to miss work.
In my neck of the woods, there are little-mentioned out breaks of meningitis almost every year. This year, scarlet fever has made a come back in two nearby towns. Scarlet fever is caused by strep A and can turn into rheumatic fever or worse if untreated. Late last year it was whooping cough showing up. My point is, that these are all naturally occurring.
