Swine Flu Claims One More Life in Clark County

LAS VEGAS (AP) - Health officials are reporting another death in Nevada related to the swine flu.

The Southern Nevada Health District says a 47-year-old man with underlying medical conditions died Friday morning in Clark County.

The health district did not release any additional information.

The death appears to be the fourth in Nevada related to swineflu.

Earlier this month health officials reported the swine flu-related death of a 51-year-old man.

In late June, a 33-year-old Clark County man infected with the swine flu virus died. Also last month, health officials reported the death a 70-year-old woman - a New York state resident - who was infected with swine flu.

There are 145 confirmed cases of the virus in Clark County.

Three of those are hospitalized with severe illness.
