Japan Man Dies of a New Kind of Flu

There are deaths occurring all around the Eastern Part of the World, this article is interesting, in that it says the man died of a "new kind of Flu".


A 45-year-old man of Shijonawate, Osaka Prefecture, who had contracted the new type of influenza, died Wednesday, according to the Osaka prefectural government.

Although the cause of death has not yet been identified, the case brought the toll to 12 deaths in Japan related to the new H1N1 strain of influenza, including suspected cases. It was the first new-flu related death in the prefecture.

It is also the nation's first case in which a person who had never suffered major or chronic diseases had possibly died from causes related to the flu. However, the government said it was unlikely the flu was the cause of death as his condition had improved.

According to the prefectural government, the man was found to have contracted influenza A in simple testing on Monday at a medical institute where he was being treated for a continuous mild fever.

  3. Sherrie excellent job tracking all this- I so appreciate it. This article is a wake up call to all of us who may be thinking well "know" when the black lung virus gets to our country as it will be announced in the media. Well this wont be the case. Articles such as above Japan one shows this may well be happining now in our own countries and without the digging of folks like you Sherrie we may never know when "it" is here.
