The New Mexico Department of Health announced today that an 11-year-old boy with H1N1 influenza from Bernalillo County died Sunday.

The boy had a chronic medical condition that put him at higher risk for serious complications. He had been hospitalized at the University of New Mexico Hospital in Albuquerque since Oct. 11.

“We express our deepest sympathies to the family who is dealing with the heartbreaking loss of their child,” Health Secretary Alfredo Vigil said. “This tragedy should remind every New Mexican that influenza can cause serious complications and even death, so it is important for everyone to follow the prevention guidelines to minimize the spread of the disease.”

So far in 2009, there have been 22 deaths related to H1N1 influenza in New Mexico.

A complete listing of all H1N1-related deaths can be found on the Department of Health’s H1N1 website at www.nmhealth.org/H1N1.
