Four more deaths in San Diego County linked to swine flu

The deaths of four more people in San Diego County have been linked to the swine flu outbreak, health officials announced Wednesday.

The latest victims were a 45-year-old woman and 37-, 39- and 56-year-old men, according to the San Diego County Health and Human Services Agency.

The 39-year-old man and 45-year-old woman had underlying medical conditions, but the other two did not, according to the HHSA.

All four tested positive for H1N1, but the virus might not be the cause of death, the HHSA reported.

So far, there have been 61 deaths in San Diego County linked to the H1N1 influenza, according to the HHSA. Fifty-four of the victims were from San Diego County and seven were visiting the area.

Locally, 771 people have been hospitalized with the virus, according to the HHSA.

According to the HHSA, all San Diego County residents are now eligible to receive the H1N1 vaccine, which previously had been administered only to those deemed at the highest risk of developing complications from the virus.
