Children Die in NYC's First Pediatric Flu Deaths of Season

First-grader Savanna Jessie who was fighting the flu and strep throat was rushed to the hospital after her family found her unresponsive

Her frantic father performed CPR. When she had trouble breathing, someone called 911.

The youngster was rushed to Elmhurst Hospital, where she was pronounced dead.

The Health Department on Tuesday also confirmed that 8-year-old Amely Baez of Queens died Monday from flu-related symptoms, the day after she was diagnosed with the virus. Last season, 106 children around the country died from the flu; six of those deaths were in New York City.

As this season's unsafe flu season continues, the city is urging New Yorkers to get their flu shot immediately. The CDC says the peak of the flu season is not here yet, and that the season will not end until May. "It's heartbreaking that parents have lost young children to the flu, my heart goes out to those families", said Mayor Bill de Blasio.

While many healthy individuals who are infected with the flu will recover without issue, infants, toddlers, and those ages 65 years and older are at greater risk for developing serious complications.

The attack on the tank, details of which were not disclosed, was also the single deadliest attack on the military of the offensive so far.

"The tragic death of a child due to the flu is a reminder of the devastating effects this illness can have on people of all ages".

There are still weeks left in this flu this season, officials said.

DOH Commissioner Mary Bassett advised residents to get vaccinated, noting that it is not too late in the season to get the flu shot. "I am directing the Department of Health to work with local providers to help protect our communities from this flu outbreak, and I urge all New Yorkers to visit local health centers and get vaccinated as soon as possible".

The podcast also informed the public of some of the best methods to prevent the flu virus. Anyone who has not received a flu shot is encouraged to do so.
