(UKPA) – 2 hours ago

A 10-year-old boy died from organ failure after developing severe pneumonia as a result of swine flu, an inquest has heard.

Angus Hardie, from Hockley, Essex, was a "healthy, fit and well child" - one of twins - before being taken seriously ill last year, the hearing was told.

He was admitted to Southend Hospital on October 3 suffering from a headache, fever and diarrhoea and vomiting. His condition was so serious he was transferred to Great Ormond Street Hospital in London for specialist treatment, but he failed to improve and died on October 6.

Consultant paediatric pathologist Irene Scheimberg, who carried out a post-mortem examination, gave the cause of Angus's death as multiple organ failure, bronchopneumonia and influenza H1N1.

Inner North London Coroner Andrew Reid recorded a verdict of natural causes.

He said: "The underlying cause of these conditions was influenza strain H1N1, swine flu."

Angus's parents, Donna and Robert Hardie, did not attend the five-minute inquest at the Royal London Hospital in east London.

This happened in Oct but I am wondering if this was a D225/G/N strain. I haven't, as yet, heard of any deaths associated with the more virulent strain in the UK, only tamiflu resistant cases in Wales...maybe it has been here already? :scratch:
