Two-year-old child dies from the after-effects of a flu. First the hope, then the greatest pain for the community of Ceglie Messapica (Brindisi), close to the family of a two-year-old child, admitted to hospital due to the very serious complications that occurred following an influenza contracted about nine days ago.

Unfortunately, although the flu had been regularly treated with antibiotics prescribed by the pediatrician, the child has not made it. He died in the afternoon, after a race between the Martina Franca and Bari hospitals, and a desperate relay between doctors, who did everything to save him without succeeding.

The news arrived in the city during the prayer vigil organised in the church of San Rocco, where many had gathered to pray for the child to overcome the crisis.

Hopefully lesson learnt, take all symptoms very seriously and never underestimate anything. Do not just ask fellow mothers on Facebook on what they think – ACT!
