SIOUX FALLS – According to KSFY-TV, a sixth-grade student at St. Mary School in Sioux Falls has died as a result of Influenza A. JP Peters died on Saturday.

The Mayo Clinic describes Influenza A:

Flu (influenza) viruses are divided into three broad categories: influenza A, B or C. Influenza A is the most common type. H1N1 flu is a variety of influenza A. H1N1 indicates the viral serotype; it’s a kind of shorthand for characteristics that identify the virus to your immune system and allow the virus to enter your cells. Varieties of influenza A (H1N1), influenza A (H3N2) and influenza B are included in each year’s flu vaccine.

KSFY-TV reports:

Sioux Falls Catholic Schools says JP was very faith-filled, loved every moment of live and every day he could be in school.
