There's been a fourth H1N1 swine flu death in Wisconsin. The Marathon County Heath Department says the victim was a school age child, with underlying health problems that may have contributed to the death.
The child had been at St. Joseph's Hospital at the time of death. Because of patient confidentiality rules, the child's name and age are not being made public.
The Wausau School District says the child had just completed 6th grade at John Muir Middle School. It is not clear if the student had symptoms while school was in session, or if other students were exposed.
The death is the fourth in Wisconsin from swine flu. Marathon County has 51 confirmed cases, but none had been fatal until now. Wisconsin has 34-hundred H1N1 positives, the most in the nation. More than two-thirds of the cases are in the Milwaukee area.
