Question what was the cause of death with the 18yo?

I was wondering if anyone here has the cause of death for the 18 guy that recently died. I am searching but I haven't found it yet.

My 12yodd has the flu. (DAY 4) Just wanted to read about it so I know what to look for.

The college student died from type a flu virus but they don't know yet which strain.

Officials say to watch out for flu symptoms and unusual behavior including inability to keep down liquids, dehydration, shortness of breath and mood swings.

I guess my question is do you know if he was dehydrated from vomiting/ diarrhea?
Did he have pneunomia?

I agree. I am baffled too why they aren't giving more info.
