Five-year-old dies of swine flu

24th November 2009

A five-year old boy who was suffering from swine flu has died at Milton Keynes Hospital.

His school, Emberton School in Buckinghamshire, has been closed. Dr Diane Gray, deputy director of public health for Milton Keynes, said: "My sympathies go out to his parents, family and friends. We don't yet know the cause of this boy's death. At this stage, there is no need to change normal behaviour – you should continue to go to school, work and any social activities."
