According to the New York City Health Department, the majority of flu-related deaths involve people with diabetes, heart or lung disease, people over the age of 65 and children under the age of 5.

Her frantic father performed CPR.

Over 2,000 New Yorkers died from the flu and pneumonia, a common flu-related complication, in 2015, the previous year with records available, according to a release from the New York City Health Department.

Bassett refused to say whether the two kids who have died were vaccinated, but said the large majority of children who die of flu are typically unvaccinated.

An eight-year-old Corona girl died on February 5, one day after she was diagnosed with the flu at East Elmhurst Hospital. The health department said test results confirmed the 8-year-old - who was reported to have flu-like symptoms - died from the influenza virus. About 6.5 percent of emergency room visits since October can be attributed to the flu - the highest number in four years.

No. 17 Ohio State holds off pesky IL to win 75-67
The Illini have played themselves out of multiple wins this season - see Northwestern, Maryland and Minnesota losses. Mark Alstork paced IL (12-12, 2-9) with 19 points and freshman Trent Frazier added 12 - all after halftime.


"If you are sick with the flu, avoid contact with others and stay home for at least 24 hours after your fever is gone", Health Commissioner Dr. Mary T. Bassett said. It did not release details around the first case but encouraged people to get flu shots.

"It's not too late to get a flu shot", Bassett said. "We urge parents to protect themselves and their families by getting this potentially life-saving vaccine today".

Neighbors were shocked - and also anxious about the flu spreading.

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

"Sad. My two young ones have gotten the flu shot".
