Fears of a deadly bacterial outbreak at one Bronx school brought parents together for an informational meeting Wednesday. Ten-year-old Nathera Mossoud died last Friday from Grade A Streptococcus, a flesh-eating bacteria. Parents want to know if the bacteria that killed the P.S/M.S. 95 student is contagious.Parents and students met with a doctor who assured them there was nothing to be concerned about. The doctor said that the virus, contracted by Mossoud, is rare and only transferred through open wounds. Mossoud's grandfather said the girl had a skin condition which created open wounds, making her susceptible to the bacteria. The family isn't blaming the school for the incident.
