Swine flu death confirmed

6th October 2009

A 24-year-old woman from Manchester has become the tenth patient to die from swine flu in the north-west of England.

North West Director of Public Health Dr Ruth Hussey stated that the woman's death had been due to the virus. She added: "If you look at the numbers of people who have had swine flu, the number of people who have died are small in comparison - and the number of normally healthy people who have died even smaller."
