East Texas death attributed to H1N1 virus

12/19/2013

CONROE, Texas (AP) - Public health officials in East Texas say an illness that may have sickened at least eight people, including four deaths, has been attributed in one case to the H1N1 virus.

In a statement from the Montgomery County Hospital District and Public Health District on Wednesday, spokeswoman Jennifer Nichols-Contella said none of the patients had received a flu shot, which protects against the H1N1 virus.

Eight cases this month were reported by Conroe Regional Hospital, about 40 miles north of Houston. The Texas Department of State Health Services and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention are investigating.
