According to the Michigan Department of Community Health, flu in Michigan has led to death of a child in southeast Michigan. Health officials said that due to privacy concerns, they would not reveal other details of the victim, including which county the child died in or her age.
It's the first confirmed pediatric death in Michigan this flu season. However, a dozen or more adult deaths have been reported in the state. Deaths occurring due to disease in adults are not tracked as closely as child deaths.
