    First of all, I would like to extend my sincerest condolences to Michelle Fahle’s family.
    Then I would like to ask the media, to extend their coverage on this issue.What exactly are people dying from when they die of the h1n1? Is it always pnuemonia? Are their always a particular set of symptoms that precedes the demise of someone? Are there any predictors of serioius problems?
    Also, text needs to be more precise. The last sentence of the first paragraph on this article says: ” To put things in perspective, between 46 and 88 children have died in the past three years from the normal flu.” Does this mean between 46 and 88 children have died Each Year in the last three years? Lastly what are the pros and cons of taking the shot?
