14th September 2009

A man aged 53 has died in Scotland from swine flu, becoming the eighth person to die from the disease in the country.

He had no other medical problems. Health Secretary Nicola Sturgeon said: "Our thoughts are with the patient's family and friends at this very sad time. Fortunately in the vast majority of H1N1 cases, most people have fairly mild symptoms and make a full recovery within a week."
