Officials: Man from northwestern part of state had underlying health conditions An older man from northwestern North Dakota is the state’s first confirmed death due to the H1N1 influenza virus, state health officials announced Monday.
Health officials are scrambling to expand a hotline for Minnesotans suffering from the flu after callers to the new service reported the telephone went unanswered, they received busy signals and there were hours-long waits before nurses called back.
The victim lived in southeastern South Dakota and was 80 to 89 years old. In a release, the department said the person had influenza A and other chronic health conditions.
