Migrant boy died of flu, not cold, experts say

The boy who died on Christmas appears to have died of the flu.
US doctors sent him home with cold medicine instead. They don't seem to have tested for flu.
That's negligence.

https://www.cnn.com/2018/12/27/health/guatemalan-boy-death-doctors/index.html
The flu appears to have been contracted in unsanitary US facility because he died 7 days after arrival at US.

Have other children died of flu?

How many other children have died? Was flu tested? What did the autopsy say?
Was there an autopsy at all?

Did Jakelin Caal died of the flu? (It can kill you in hours).

US said it was not known whether she ate or drank enough during the trip. Is that true? The father denies it. Did she contract the flu in unsanitary US facilities?

Congress has a lot of questions to ask and subpoenas to issue.

1. This is just Damn Sad.

If we seem intent on keep these kids in custody, we damn well better provide some basic human services for them.

2. I have no medical degree

but any mother knows a child doesn't have a high fever with a cold. It's the flu! Perhaps the er folks just saw another brown kid and have him cursory care? Shameful!
