Possible H1N1 death in Central Kentucky

Another possible death, being attributed to the H1N1 flu in the state, this one, right here in Lexington.

Two deaths, connected to the illness, were reported in western Kentucky just yesterday.

One was a teenager in good health in Caldwell County, the other, a woman in her 20's with other health related issues in Christian County.

The Fayette County Coroner isn't releasing any specifics about the person who passed away at UK hospital.

State health officials will now conduct a test to determine if H1N1 was a factor in the death of the Lexington person.

When taken, those results can come back in in about 48 hours.

If confirmed, this will be second death in Fayette County to be attributed to the H1N1 flu.
