15th death connected to H1N1 in state

COVINGTON, Ky. (AP) - Health officials say a northern Kentucky
woman in her mid-50s has died from complications associated with
the H1N1 virus, or swine flu.

The woman lived in Kenton County. The Northern Kentucky Health
Department says it is the 15th death attributed to swine flu in
Kentucky.

Health department officials say there have been 180 confirmed
cases of swine flu in the state, but "this number may not
accurately reflect the actual number of cases."

State health officials said there have also been swine
flu-related deaths in Jefferson, Fayette, Caldwell, Christian,
Hardin, Knox, Pulaski and Scott counties. Officials said a Caldwell
County teen has been the only minor to die from the illness.
