Swine flu has claimed the life of a fourth victim in the Czech Republic. Hospital officials in the West Bohemian town of Karlovy Vary said that a 56-year-old man had succumbed to a generally poor state of health, complicated by the H1N1 virus. Another three patients with the illness are currently hospitalised; two of them are in critical condition. The four deaths in the Czech Republic in which swine flu was a contributing factor have all occurred over the last month. Karlovy Vary is one of the regions with the highest incidence of swine flu cases in the Czech Republic.
