SAN FRANCISCO — The total number of confirmed flu deaths in the Bay Area is now at least nine — with two deaths in Marin and Santa Clara counties and one death each in Sonoma, San Francisco, Contra Costa, Alameda and San Mateo counties.

The death is one of nine confirmed fatal infections of the flu throughout the Bay Area this season.

The person died around the end of December after contracting the H1N1 strain, San Francisco Department of Public Health spokeswoman Colleen Chawla said.

A second flu-related death occurred earlier this week in Santa Clara County, public health department spokeswoman Amy Cornell said today.
A 61-year-old man, who had underlying medical conditions, died sometime since Monday, only a few weeks after the death of a 41-year-old woman just before Christmas, Cornell said.

The woman was the county’s first flu death of the season.

There have been 12 flu-related hospitalizations — not including the deaths — throughout the county, she said.

A 23-year-old Sonoma County resident died Wednesday after contracting the H1N1 strain of the flu, Sonoma County Health Service assistant director Tammy Moss Chandler said.
