First Flu Death Recorded in Wisconsin

The Wisconsin Department of Health Services confirms the state’s first flu-related death of a child during the current season.  The state says the victim was from southeastern Wisconsin, but it didn’t release the age of the victim or the hometown.  There have been 13 flu-related deaths in the state since last October.  Doctors say the report of the child’s death proves how serious influenza can be.
