Schools on guard as flu deaths rise
from The Wall Street Journal
Schools are taking precautions such as disinfecting buildings and reminding parents to keep sick youngsters at home as an intensifying flu season nationwide has led to a higher number of deaths among children so far. At least 21 children have died from influenza, the federal government said, compared with six at the same point a year ago. Still, officials at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said it was too early to ascertain whether this season would be worse than in years past. Cases may rise as students return after winter break, school officials said.
