Four more H1N1 deaths in Wis.


MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- The Wisconsin Department of Health Services says four more people in the state have died from the swine flu.

Department spokeswoman Stephanie Marquis said Wednesday the deaths were reported over the last week. There was one in Eau Claire County, two in Milwaukee County and one in Oconto County.

That brings the death total to five since Sept. 1 and 14 altogether including those in the spring. She had no other information on ages, sexes or health background.

The Oconto County Health Department said Tuesday a woman there with underlying health condition died from the complications related to the swine flu.

The department said Tuesday it would tell health care providers to stop conducting mass swine-flu vaccinations starting next week until vaccine supplies increase and only target high-risk groups.
