Toddler died after wrong diagnosis3rd October 2012
An inquest has been told that a two-year-old girl from Norwich died from meningitis after her parents were wrongly told by a paramedic that she was suffering from swine flu.
Georgia Keeling died after being rushed to the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital on August 4, 2009, at the height of the swine flu pandemic. Her older sister, Charlie, had earlier been correctly diagnosed with the disease, contributing to the confusion. The inquest heard that a paramedic had arrived earlier in the day only to send an ambulance away because it was “another case of swine flu.”
