Another southern Colorado child has died, and health officials say they suspect influenza.

Officials with the El Paso County Health Department say the 14 month old child tested positive for the virus, but they can't confirm if that's the cause of death.

So far, at least five people have died of the flu, all of them children. Among them, an 11 year old Colorado Springs girl, and a 20 month old Pueblo boy.

More than 6,000 cases are confirmed. That's more than 2001 and 2002's seasons combined.
