BATON ROUGE— A female child and an adult male in the Greater New Orleans area died in the past week from a H1N1-related illness, according to the Department of Health and Hospitals.


The DHH confirmed three deaths in the state from H1N1 in the past week. The other death occurred in the Lafayette area.


There have been 11 confirmed H1N1-related deaths statewide since the outbreak began.


The department said it would not release other personal details about the individuals to protect the privacy of the residents and their families.


"These losses are tragic for the families involved, and certainly our hearts go out to them," said DHH Secretary Alan Levine. "The losses we have seen in our state seem to be consistent with national trends. As individuals with pre-existing medical conditions are more likely to develop severe complications from H1N1, we strongly encourage those with pre-existing conditions to contact their medical provider for advice immediately."
