1st Arizona – 4th in U.S. – swine flu death reported

PHOENIX – A woman in Arizona suffering from a lung condition has apparently become the fourth person in the nation to die with swine flu.

The Maricopa County Health Department reported Thursday that the woman, in her late 40s, died last week of what appears to be complications of the new strain of influenza.

Laboratory tests confirmed that the woman was infected with the flu strain. Health department spokeswoman Jeanene Fowler says the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is expected to add her to the official national tally on Friday.

The case would bring the number of swine flu deaths in the nation to four and put the worldwide death toll at 70, with an estimated 6,672 cases in 33 countries.

Citizen Online Archive, 2006-2009

This archive contains all the stories that appeared on the Tucson Citizen's website from mid-2006 to June 1, 2009.

In 2010, a power surge fried a server that contained all of videos linked to dozens of stories in this archive. Also, a server that contained all of the databases for dozens of stories was accidentally erased, so all of those links are broken as well. However, all of the text and photos that accompanied some stories have been preserved.
