Two child deaths in Colorado linked to seasonal flu
Two children have died of complications from influenza in Colorado since January, according to the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment. One of the children was preschool-aged and lived in southern Colorado, and the other was “school-aged” and lived in a rural community outside the Denver area. The state health department isn’t releasing additional information, to protect the families’ privacy. Children younger than 5 and older adults are vulnerable to flu complications, as are pregnant women and people with compromised immune systems or other chronic health conditions.
