FLU TURNING INTO PLAGUE? Mother Battling Flu Has 30% Of Her Flesh Eaten Away

Mother-of-three battling the flu hospitalized with flesh-eating disease that has ravaged 30% of her soft tissue

A mother-of-three is fighting to survive a flesh-eating disease she caught after coming down with the flu. Christin Lipinski, of Arizona, has now been in intensive care for more than a week, and doctors have removed entire chunks of her arm to beat the bacteria which has ravaged 30 percent of her soft tissue. The disease took hold just days after special ed teacher Christin was diagnosed with influenza, which she treated at home. Just as she seemed to be recovering, her condition started worsening, with an intense pain in her armpit. Eventually, her husband Nate called an ambulance to take her to the nearest trauma unit where she was diagnosed with necrotizing fasciitis, one of the most deadly flesh-eating bacteria. Source
