Australia reports fourth swine flu-related death

AN officials says a 71-year-old woman has become the fourth swine flu-related death in Australia.

State acting chief health officer Rosemary Lester said Friday that the woman is also the third to die with the virus in Victoria, the state where almost half of Australia's 3,280 swine flu cases have been confirmed. All four deaths have been during the past week.

Lester says the woman, who died yesterday, asked that no details of her medical history be revealed, Lester said.

The first three Australian fatalities suffered other serious ailments and authorities have not determined that swine flu was the direct cause of death in any case.
