antigenicshift_hirescrop1Ontario reported yesterday that:

A 44-year old Toronto man with a chronic pre-existing medical condition passed away on May 23rd. On May 24th laboratory testing confirmed a positive test for H1N1 in this individual. It is not clear what role the H1N1 virus played in the fatality which is now under investigation by the Office of the Chief Coroner.

Also, there were 58 new cases since the previous report on May 22, bringing the total to 352.  Here’s how things have looked so far in Ontario, where we appear to be averaging about 15-18 new infections per day:
