Officials: 3 people near Toledo have died from flu

Posted: Updated:

TOLEDO, Ohio (AP) - County health officials say three people have died from a dangerous flu strain since the end of last year in the Toledo area.

The Toledo Lucas County Health Department says two of the deaths came last week. A third person died on New Year's Eve.

The county health commissioner says all three died from the H1N1 strain of the flu virus.

The Blade newspaper in Toledo reports that two of those who died were Toledo women in their early 60s. A 70-year-old Lucas County resident died near the end of last week from flu-related symptoms.

A fourth person from Temperance, Mich., died on Dec. 28 at a Toledo hospital from complications coming from the H1N1 virus.
