Another Southern U.P. Swine Flu Death

The U.P. has another death linked to the swine flu virus.

The Public Health Department for Delta and Menominee Counties says it happened in their area.

It’s the first confirmed swine flu-related death they’ve had.

They’re not releasing much information in order to maintain the family’s privacy.

But they say it was an adult who had pre-existing medical conditions that were complicated by the H1N1 flu.

The agency reported the death to the Michigan Department of Community Health.

The MCDH is tracking the virus across the state.

This is the second death in the U.P. this month attributed to the swine flu.

The Dickinson and Iron County Health Department reported one in their area 2 weeks ago.
