BUENOS AIRES, July 25 (Xinhua) -- The H1N1 influenza A virus has claimed 43 people in Argentina so far this year, after health authorities Thursday confirmed the death of four patients in the west and one in the east.

Mauricio Diaz, technical secretary of San Juan Province's Health Ministry, told a press conference that the latest victims of the bird flu in the province included "a 40-year-old man who suffered from lupus and three elderly people who were seriously ill."

The Las Flores City Zone Hospital Thursday reported that a 65-year-old man died of the flu in the eastern Buenos Aires province.

"We have six suspected cases, one of them died, and yesterday we received the tests that confirmed type A influenza positive in this patient," the hospital's director Adrian Decundo said.

As many as 626 people died in Argentina during the 2009 H1N1 pandemic.
