Chronically ill man dies of swine flu in Italy

Italy's health ministry says a chronically ill 56-year-old man has died in Naples after contracting swine flu.
The ministry says the man had been hospitalized at the local Cotugno hospital when he died Tuesday.
Last month, Italy's first reported swine flu related fatality was also in Naples. Since then at least five other deaths related to swine flu have been reported elsewhere in the country.
Italy expects swine flu cases to peak between December and January, with 1.5 million to 3 million cases. A vaccination campaign beginning Nov. 15 will immunize up to 40 percent of Italy's 60 million people.
