First Australian death

20 06 2009

Information on the first person to die with Swine Flu in Australia:

  • From Crof’s blog (H5N1): here and here.
  • The ABC site has some good coverage here.

Note that the ABC is quoting the Australian Health Minister as saying:

“Whilst this is the first recorded death in Australia of a person who had swine flu, it is unclear whether that was a direct or contributing cause to the death,” …

The person apparently had other health issues.
