In North Alberta an elderly woman who just recently died is believed to have died as a result of contracting the swine flu. It was not immediately known as to whether or not this lady had any other health issues but she was of older age.
In Canada there have now been 214 confirmed cases of the swine flu. This death marks the first death of anyone outside of the U.S. and Mexico. One encouraging thing however is that all three deaths in the United States and Mexico were of people that were either young, elderly, or had underlying medical issues. This continues to show what we have believe all along which is that a large portion of the population should have minimal concerns of death in regards to the swine flu.
