SEATTLE - Public health officials say a Washington resident has died with what appears to be complications of swine flu.

It's the first death in Washington state associated with this new H1N1 flu strain.

The man was a Snohomish County resident in his 30s with underlying heart conditions. He died last week.

"It's a sobering reminder that influenza is serious, and can be fatal," Gov. Chris Gregoire said." I know our public health agencies are doing everything they can to track and monitor this outbreak and to protect the people of our state."

An additional 18 cases of swine flu have been confirmed in Washington, bringing the state's total to 101.

The state Department of Health said Saturday that another 19 cases are considered probable for swine flu.

As of Saturday, 70 cases were confirmed in King County, which includes Seattle; 18 were confirmed in Snohomish County; five in Pierce County; two each in Spokane, Whatcom and Clark counties; and one each in Thurston and Skagit counties.

The probable cases include 10 in King County and nine in Snohomish County.

Case counts are expected to continue to rise.

"We're working with local and federal partners to track this outbreak," said Secretary of Health Mary Selecky, "and while most illnesses from this new flu strain have been fairly mild, we must remember that influenza claims about 36,000 lives every year nationwide. That's why we urge people to take this outbreak, and the seasonal flu we see every year, very seriously."

Health Official: Swine Flu-Related Death Reported in Washington State

A swine flu-related death has been reported in Washington state, bringing the total number of fatalities in the United States to three, FOX affiliate KCPQ confirmed.

The latest victim was described as a man in his 30s with an underlying heart condition.

The death was announced by a state health official.

Earlier Saturday, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said the U.S. had 2,254 confirmed cases of the H1N1 swine flu in 44 different states.

"Today there are almost 3,000 probable and confirmed cases here in the United States," the CDC's Dr. Anne Schuchat told a news briefing, according to a Reuters report. "The good news is we are not seeing a rise above the epidemic threshhold in that system."

In addition to the three who have died here from the illness, 104 are currently hospitalized.

The new numbers came as Japan and Australia confirmed the first cases of swine flu in heir countries Saturday.

Yeah, I wonder what they call an underlying heart condition? Would they consider HBP as such?

I can imagine it went something like this:

"Sir, what should we tell the press?"
"Tell them he had an underlying heart condition."
"But sir, he didn't."
"His heart was lying under his rib cage, wasn't it?"
Never mind.

I want to address an issue that's been concerning me, that has to do with a sense of having dodged a bullet, a sense that this is over," Dr. Richard Besser, the CDC's acting director, said during a Friday teleconference. "While we have seen a lot of encouraging news in terms of severity, we continue to see hundreds and hundreds of new cases each day," he said.


While the swine flu -- technically known as the H1N1 virus -- is similar to seasonal flu, there are some important differences, Besser said. "One thing we are seeing, unlike seasonal flu, a higher percentage seem to be having vomiting and diarrhea," he said.



What are the other differences?

I can't find anything left now, but when this originally started and the US media wasn't reporting on it yet, I read info from Mexico that said ocular (eye) pain and redness was associated... in one case bleeding.

Here's a link:

The PHAC report said the disease outbreak struck some healthcare workers and that most patients were previously healthy young adults between the ages of 25 and 44. Symptoms included fever, headache, ocular pain, shortness of breath, and fatigue that rapidly progressed to severe respiratory distress in about 5 days.
