A 38-year-old man has died in the occupied north from swine flu, Turkish Cypriot reports said on Tuesday.
He is the second victim of H1N1 in the north.
The man, who died on Sunday, was admitted to hospital last week with flu symptoms.
After exam results confirmed the suspicion that he carried the virus, the man was transferred to the hospital’s special unit dealing with H1N1.
His condition deteriorated however, and he died on Sunday.
The 38-year-old’s death follows that of a 52-year-old woman who died late in January.
In the government-controlled areas, a health ministry spokesman said there was no cause for concern.
Also referred to as swine flu, H1N1 caused a global pandemic in 2009. It is currently a regular flu virus that circulates worldwide.
