First ND Flu Death of Season

First ND Flu Death of Season

Posted: Updated:

A doctor at Minot's Trinity Health say H-1-N-1 took another life this week, but the death has not yet been added to the state health department's official tally.

(Dr. Casmiar Nwaigwe, Trinity Health) "I know that we have had a fatality from this institution, and from what I understand that has been reported to the state."

The deceased was a young woman who suffered from multiple health conditions, but Dr. Casmair Nwaigwe (Wig-way) says there is a reason the flu is affecting twenty and thirty year olds differently.

(Dr. Casmiar Nwaigwe, Trinity Health) "We have noticed that the people that get very sick, and get hospitalized, and even die from it tend to be the young adults. We don't know exactly why, but part of the suspicion may have to do with the immune system being very active. What's making the sick, is not the virus itself, but the body's reaction to the infection."

Trinity offers a walk-in clinic that vaccinates patients against the flu including the H-1-N-1 virus.
