Australia : Swine flu kills four in six weeks

Via The West Australian :

" Four West Australians have died from swine flu in the past six weeks, and the death of a Perth man last week has also been linked to the flu strain.

Health authorities confirmed yesterday six people had died from swine flu, also known as A/H1N1, this year, up from the two deaths reported by early last month.

They said all the cases were in adults with predisposing risk factors or medical conditions. But sources have told _The West Australian _that a Perth man in his early 50s, with no known underlying medical condition, died from swine flu late last week."
