Swine flu death update-doctor fails to diagnose

July 13, 2009

SKY NEWS:

”A “perfectly healthy” six-year-old girl died of swine flu within hours of being taken to hospital after complaining of a sore throat, it has emerged.

Chloe Buckley, from north west London, died on Thursday a day after her GP wrongly diagnosed her illness.

Sky reporter Victoria Gatenby said: “Chloe’s parents took her to their GP on Wednesday with a sore throat.

“The GP diagnosed her with tonsillitis, sending her home without Tamiflu, which is the drug that combats swine flu.”

The youngster’s condition quickly deteriorated and she was taken to the accident and emergency unit at Hillingdon Hospital in Uxbridge.

On Thursday she was transferred to St Mary’s Hospital in Paddington, but despite doctors’ efforts she died.

Chris Spencer, director of education and children’s services for Hillingdon Council, said: “This is a little girl who until a few days ago in all our minds was a child that was perfectly healthy so everybody here is in a deep state of shock.””

Absolutely terrifying thought that doctors are MISDIAGNOSING this!!!!!!
