Second H1N1 Death Confirmed
09/10/2009

(AP) - Health officials say a 6-year-old child from

southeast Kansas has died from H1N1. It's the state's second

death linked to the H1N1 virus.

The Kansas Department of Health and Environment said Wednesday

that the child's case of H1N1 was confirmed Aug. 25 and the

death was reported to the state Sept. 3.

The department provided no other details about the child.

On Aug. 6, KDHE reported that a middle-aged resident of Sedgwick

County had died after contracting the virus. But that victim had a

chronic medical condition, and H1N1 may have been only a

contributing factor.

H1N1 cases have been confirmed in 53 of the state's 105

counties since the first cases were reported in late April. Most

have been mild.
