Eight more people have died from Swine Flu to take B.C.’s death toll from the novel virus to 42, the provincial health ministry announced Tuesday.

93 new severe cases of H1N1 infection have been hospitalized despite indications that the second, more dangerous wave of Swine Flu has crested.

957 people have been hospitalized in B.C. so far, with about one-third of those being children and youths under 19. The U.S. Centers for Disease Control says children continue to be the ones who experience the most hospitalizations.

Two of the new deaths were reported in interior health, four in Fraser Health and two on Vancouver Island.

The ministry of health issued the following tally of hospitalizations and deaths.

o 346 in Fraser Health, including 17 deaths.

o 206 in Interior Health, including nine deaths.

o 43 in Northern Health, including one death.

o 243 in Vancouver Coastal Health, including seven deaths.

o 119 on Vancouver Island, including eight deaths.

Of the 42 who have died, 37 had medical conditions that were likely to complicate the impact of Swine Flu. Four of the dead did not have underlying condition. One case is under investigation.
