San Diego girl, 5, dies from H1N1

A 5-year-old girl became the 24th San Diego County resident to die of the H1N1 virus this year, the county Health and Human Services Agency announced Wednesday.

The girl, whose name was withheld, had no underlying medical conditions, unlike the other victims of the so-called swine flu.

Three non-residents have also died of H1N1 in the county, according to HHSA.

To date, 332 people have been hospitalized in the county because of the virus — 12 more than were announced at a Board of Supervisors meeting this week, which reflected totals through Monday.

HHSA encourages people to stay home from work or school if they have influenza-like illness or symptoms similar to the seasonal flu, including fever, cough, sore throat, body aches, headache, chills and fatigue.

It’s recommended that patients remain home for 24 hours after the fever dissipates without the use of medication.

People with underlying medical conditions who experience such illness should contact their primary care physician quickly, according to the HHSA.
