UK : Child died of swine flu at the Conquest Hospital

An article from Grantham Journal :

" A CHILD has died of swine flu while being treated at the Conquest Hospital.

The youngster, whose name, age and gender have not been revealed, died at the hospital on The Ridge between September last year and February this year.

But the child’s death only came to light this week following a request to the hospital trust under the Freedom of Information Act.

East Sussex Hospitals NHS Trust (ESHT) said there had been three deaths at the Conquest due to swine flu since last September, and one at its sister hospital, the District General Hospital in Eastbourne.

All three victims had a background of illness.

The other two patients at the Conquest were an adult and pensioner."
