ST. JOHN'S, N.L. - Health officials in Newfoundland and Labrador says five of 15 recent deaths involving people who tested positive for H1N1 can be attributed directly to the viral infection.
The ages of those individuals, four women and one man, ranged from 29 to 58.
The other 10 individuals died from other underlying medical conditions.
Dr. Simon Avis says it was important for him to perform the review as it helps the public and the medical community better understand the direct impact of the H1N1 virus.
Health Minister Jerome Kennedy says should there be any further cases of people dying after testing positive for H1N1, they will also be reviewed by Avis and his team of medical specialists.
