Thirty Children Have Died of the Flu This Season in the U.S., According to CDC

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.

  1. 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!

  2. 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

  3. 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 🤷🏾‍♂️🤷🏾‍♂️

  4. 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
