Elderly man with swine flu has died

29th June 2009

The Scottish government has confirmed that a 73-year old man has died from swine flu at the Royal Alexandra Hospital in Paisley.

Scottish Health Secretary Nicola Sturgeon said: "Our thoughts are with the family and friends of the patient at this tragic and very sad time. The family have asked for the patient's identity to be kept private. Although it is concerning that the patient had swine flu, we are aware that the patient had very serious underlying health issues."
