Swine flu claims new mum

2nd November 2009

A 31-year-old new mother has died from swine flu days after giving birth at Salford Royal Hospital.

Susan Ford had a Caesarean section after she came into hospital with flu symptoms, but she died on 31 October. Dr Ruth Hussey, North West regional director of public health, said: "I would like to start by saying how sorry we are to hear about this death. We are collecting information to piece together a picture of how this virus is behaving and affecting people, which will inform how we respond to swine flu."
