Hampton Roads Child Dies From Swine Flu

September 11, 2009

RICHMOND, Va. (AP) - Public health officials in Virginia are
reporting the death of a Hampton Roads child who was diagnosed with
the H1N1 influenza virus.

If confirmed by additional tests, the death would be the fourth
in Virginia from the so-called swine flu.

The Virginia Department of Health said Friday the child who was
diagnosed with the flu had an underlying health condition that put
her at greater risk of complications from the flu.

No further details were released on the child because of privacy
concerns.

U.S. government officials said the highest concentration of flu
cases is in the Southeast and a few other states.
