It is possible to have both, and the hospital has not confirmed whether Alfie also had meningitis.
Mel Pickup, Warrington And Halton Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust chief executive, said: “Alfie’s death is an absolute tragedy and our heartfelt sympathy goes out to Alfie’s family at this difficult time. We are supporting Alfie’s family following Alfie’s death from meningococcal sepsis. If the family wish to discuss anything further with us, their family liaison officer or paediatric consultant, we will support them.”
