Children Especially Susceptible To The Flu

(NORTH CAROLINA NEWS NETWORK) — There have been 67 flu-related deaths in North Carolina alone – that number just released Thursday when state officials released new flu numbers. The North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services released Thursday that North Carolina saw 21 new flu deaths last week.   So far, the virus has claimed the lives of 31 children in the state, including 6-year-old Emily Muth from Cary.  Children and elderly adults are considered the most vulnerable to flu complications.

DR. Tara Narula tells us some warning signs you should look out for in kids:

  • The child is breathing faster
  • The child looks bluish
  • The child is not eating or drinking
  • The child is listless or lethargic
