MILWAUKEE, Wis. -- Health officials in Wisconsin, California and Illinois are reporting new deaths from swine flu and say all three patients had had other health problems.

The Wisconsin death was the state's first from the H1N1 virus. Milwaukee Health Commissioner Bevan Baker would not release any details Thursday except to say that the person was an adult who had a common underlying health condition that he would not specify.

A 74-year-old man from Gurnee, Ill., died Tuesday, according to the Lake County Health Department. Officials said he had significant medical conditions that increased his vulnerability.

Officials in California said 9-year-old Karen Perez of Concord had been diagnosed with swine flu and had a bacterial infection before she died May 29.
