The death toll from the H1N1 Influenza A virus in Honduras has risen to four, with the latest death in the northern city of San Pedro Sula, a Health Ministry official said Wednesday.

Bredy Lara, Director of the health monitoring department of the ministry, confirmed the death of the fourth victim only a week after announcing the death of the third.
The latest fatality involves a woman with a history of respiratory disease, Lara said, adding, "we conclude that besides her history, flu contributed to her death."
The previous victims included a woman from Haiti, a woman from the central town of Valle de Angeles, and a man from the southern city of Choluteca.
This year has seen 127 confirmed cases of H1N1, including 71 women and 56 men, Lara said."
