    See instead of posting vague stories to scare people hold off until all the information is in..there is nothing on this story saying what else was wrong with them. I for one am so sick of the media and so are the drs. Also WTAP why dont you post all the stats on how many die from the regular flu or will that not get ratings?

    My daughter who lives in Cabell County has H1N1. She is a 26 normally healthy woman. She developed symptoms 10/4/09, diagnosed 10/7/09 with H1N1, viral pnuemonia, blisters in throat down into bronchial tubes and severly dehydrated. She then developed a sinus infection and pink eye. Its been 11 days and she's still too weak to be out of bed for very long. I know she spread it because she went about her usual routine for 3 days because it is STRONGLY frowned upon if you miss work/school. I've been scared she would become another WV statistic. We need to take this seriously!

    The man from Kanawha County worked in Cabell County as a nurse at St. Mary's Hospital. The "person" was a home-health nurse in Cabell County. The student had no other health conditions. The fourth person to die also suffered from epilepsy.
