The Center for Disease Control estimates that at least 30 children died from the flu in the past few months.
In new data, the CDC shared that over 74,000 people have contracted the flu this season. Of course, this number is likely higher, since not everyone who gets the flu checks in with a doctor.
But Lynnette Brammer, the head of CDC’s Domestic Flu Surveillance team, is anticipating a drop in numbers.
“Hopefully we’re at the peak now, but until we see it go down for a couple of weeks we won’t know that we have reached peak yet,” said Brammer to CNN. “Some areas of the country may have, but I think some areas are probably still going up.”
However, with the federal shutdown happening, the epidemic could still get worse since the CDC is a government organization. In the meantime, Brammer shared some ways to combat the spreading disease.

Do you want to know how I know almost all 30 children took the flu shot? Because MSM isn't saying that the shot saved children lives from flu. Had it done so, it would've been on every news station available on MSM. They always use reverse psychology on the masses, it can be used on them as well. Good luck out there!
This kid that used to go to my school died from the flu a day ago
Listen, if you don't trust the idea of receiving a flu shot or allowing your kid to have a flu shot, that's perfectly fine.
Especially if you don't even like the little shit and he won't get kidnapped no matter how often you try to "forget" him in Costco
Music playing on a video about 30 plus kids dying, but won’t play if some rapper they’ve never covered overdoses. Gotta love compLex.
This is not a flu. It is a misdiagnosis. They should never pollute the water. Water should never be classism or political. This is what they think that these ppl. are dying from #puzzleridesbook
Never had flu shots and never had the flu
And Trump has the audacity to call other countries shitholes….
this is really sad. respect to all those who lost their lives in this "epidemic"
I'm not exactly sure which group or demographic they target their channel at
Bro just eat your veggies smh
CompLex plays music for children who innocently died but make a moment of silence for a dumbass rapper that died for reaping what he sows
30 fucking children died and y’all playing music?
There is no such thing as the flu guys. I MEAN C'MON GUYS WAKE THE FUCK UP. People getting sick "without catching it".
From the FLU or the FLU shot ? Hm.
One of the children was a 7th grader at my school…
Oh trying to get parents to give their child that shot by fear.. 😂😂😂 won't work for me.. You can say 1,000,000 kids died from the flu I'll be like 🤷🏾♂️🤷🏾♂️
Here come the thousands upon thousands of google doctors that will tell you to avoid vaccination at all costs. As someone who is in the medical field, don't listen to these morons. You're only endangering you and/or your kids by doing this. In addition, you'd also be endangering kids or people who are immunocompromised and can't receive vaccination as a method of protection. #HerdImmunity
Shit sounds like left 4 dead
Bitch don’t take down my comment

Yea they died cause they got the 😷 flu shots 🤧 🤧 🤒 I will never get it let my body do the work
