A toddler dies of a mysterious illness, which makes a school in Detroit clean like crazy.
CBS said that after a preschooler died from a mysterious sickness with flu-like symptoms, an elementary school in Detroit went into hyper-cleaning mode and used every disinfectant service on the market.
At first, it looked like the little boy had a viral cold, but according to officials, the cause of death has not yet been determined.
Several other students got fevers and started throwing up, which forced the school to close for a thorough and thorough cleaning.
The Detroit Health Department is keeping an eye on what’s going on at Marcus Garvey Academy, and people have been sent there to look at how the school cleans.
Even though the school is clean, not all parents are ready to send their kids back.
Theodore Burton, whose two girls go to Marcus Garvey, told CBS, “It’s good that they cleaned up the school, but we’re still trying to figure out who all got it.”
Burton, like many other people, wants to know things like why so many kids got sick at the same time. Burton said, “We’re trying to figure out if it’s the flu, COVID, or allergy season.” “We just have a lot of worries.”
Parents of kids ages 4 to 7 have been told to take their kids to the doctor right away if they have fever, headache, nausea, vomiting, or stomach pain.
“Most of the time, it spreads through breath drops. Dr. Tiffney Widner of the Children’s Hospital of Michigan told CBS that if someone coughs into their hand and then touches a surface with that hand, the drops from that cough can help spread the flu virus to someone else.
Burton, who is keeping an eye on his girls for any signs of illness and hoping that the school district and health department will figure out what’s going on so that parents can send their kids to school on Monday.
“All we want is for everyone to be fine. Be safe. “That’s what’s most important,” Burton told CBS.
