A 71-year-old woman from northeast Kansas died from infection with the H1N1 virus.

"The activity level of the 2009 H1N1 flu virus remains low in Kansas. However, it continues to circulate and is still a threat," said Dr. Eberhart-Phillips. "We are watching this virus closely, particularly in light of the increased activity that states in the southeastern part of the country are reporting. Anyone who has not yet received the pandemic H1N1 influenza vaccine should do so."
