    Flu Struck north Jutlander death in Norway

    A middle-aged truck driver from Pandrup died during a journey in Norway. The man is possibly the first fatal victim of avian influenza A at home. It writes nordjyske.dk.

    Both truck drivers at the train had been sick with flu for several days. It was the owner of the haulage firm from Pandrup who drove the truck when he discovered that his colleague beside had died while he was sleeping.

    As the vehicle operator came back to Aalborg, he was hospitalized and was diagnosed with influenza A - but it is not yet determined whether the deceased colleague was hit by the same influenza type and whether it was that he died.

    - We expect to receive an official explanation from doctors in Norway, which may clarify whether the truck driver died of influenza A, said Henrik Nielsen, senior consultant doctor at the Infectious Diseases Division at Aalborg Hospital.

              The danish man who died from H1N1 pneumonia in Norway, did NOT get infected in Norway, he got infected in Denmark and had been ill for about a week before we went to Norway. IN Norway, within 12/24 hours, he suddenly got much worse, an ambulance was called, but when it arrived he was aready dead. That is what the danish health authorities said today on danish TV.
