Swine flu takes fourth North Carolina victim

The swine flu has claimed another life in North Carolina. One week ago, a 38 year old pregnant woman was hospitalized at Wilson Medical Center. She tested positive for the H1N1 virus. She was rushed to Wake Med in Raleigh where she gave birth to a healthy baby girl. But Thursday the new mother of two died at Wake Med. Health officials declined to comment on this latest case, but they said the virus can be difficult to treat if there are other health concerns. This case marks the fourth H1N1 death in our state.
