Canadian officials confirmed that a Toronto man with swine flu has died. It is the second death of a Canadian with the virus. Dr. David Williams, Ontario's Acting Chief Medical Officer of Health, said in a statement Monday that a 44-year old man with a chronic pre-existing medical condition died on May 23. He says it's not clear what role swine flu played in the fatality. A coroner is investigating. A 39-year-old Alberta woman with chronic, pre-existing medical conditions, died on April 28. An autopsy did not show whether the virus played a role. Canada has more than 850 confirmed cases of swine flu.
