A six-year-old girl has become the 16th person to die in Britain after contracting H1N1 flu, health officials said on Monday, days after the first death from the infection in an otherwise healthy patient. Chloe Buckley, from northwest London, died on July 9 at St Mary's Hospital in London, NHS officials said. A post mortem will be carried out to see if she was suffering any underlying health conditions.
"We would like to extend our deepest sympathies to the family at this difficult time as they come to terms with their loss," said Simon Tanner, Regional Director of Public Health.
On Friday, the government announced that a patient from Essex, eastern England, had died from the virus, but unlike all the others had no underlying health conditions.
