A 60 year old man has died from Swine flu, bringing the death toll in Sweden from the AH1NI virus to five. The man was found dead in his flat in Örebro in central Sweden. He'd been off work sick for a week. Tests showed that the primary cause of death was cardiac arrest, brought on by the flu.

Meanwhile , a woman in her 40's is on a respirator at Hudiksvalls hospital after becoming infected with the virus. A 14 year old boy is also on a respirator in hospital after falling severely ill from the virus.

 According to the latest figures from the Institute for Infectious Disease, 51 people are currently in hospital being treated for Swine Flu in Sweden. Three of these are on respirators and one on an artificial lung machine.
