Recombinomics Commentary 23:55
March 24, 2011

The transportation officer who died of atypical pneumonia in what is considered the first death of the epidemic of human influenza A (H1N1) that caused the issuance of a general health warning on the state to prevent more people from becoming infected.

It should be noted that four other people are hospitalized and under medical observation following presents a clinical picture of atypical pneumonia.

An Agent road have already died and there are ten more affected.
The above translations from recent stories in Mexico describe a 10-14 cases of atypical pneumonia which are likely H1N1 infections.  These cases are clustered in and around Juarez, Mexico and have led to influenza vaccination of 250 transport officers, and a warning for the region. 

This warning and associated actions raise concerns that H1N1 circulating in the area is producing more severe illness leading to pneumonia, hospitalizations, and death.
More detail on the condition of these patients, as well as sequence data from the influenza isolated from these patients, would be useful.
