    Isenberg Elementary student dies after flu-like symptoms

    ...

    Hickson said doctors aren’t 100 percent sure, but they believe he could’ve suffered from myocarditis, which is an inflammation of the heart. The family has requested and doctors have approved an autopsy. In children, myocarditis can be triggered by a viral infection.

    Jerel had no symptoms other than those that appeared to be a stomach virus, which Hickson was treating him for, she said....
    'Flu-like' in this case sounds more like an intestinal virus comparison, rather than influenza, but after seeming to recover from that, a few days later Jerel had a headache, the next day stomach pain returned and he trouble communicating. He passed away that day at the hospital ER right after they swabbed him for the flu.
