Swine flu claims Clark County man, 33

LAS VEGAS (AP) – Southern Nevada health officials say a 33-year-old Clark County man infected with the swine flu virus has died.

The Southern Nevada Health District said Monday that the man had no underlying heath conditions and had been hospitalized since June 15. He died Sunday.

The death is the second in Nevada related to the virus, also called H1N1.

Earlier this month, a 70-year-old woman from New York state died in Nevada, as officials diagnosed her with the illness after she arrived in Las Vegas.

Health officials say there have been 80 confirmed swine flu cases in Clark County, with a majority of people experiencing mild illness.
