State Health Department: Reporting that a child in eastern North Carolina has died from complications from the flu – the first pediatric flu death since February 2020. The state has seen a rapid rise in flu cases in the last few weeks. While the flu is usually not as serious as other viruses we are seeing right now, like COVID-19 or RSV, the flu can still have complications. So far this season, five adult flu-related deaths have been reported. https://www.wfmynews2.com/article/news/health/north-carolina-department-of-health-and-human-services-reports-first-pediatric-flu-death-since-2020
