The Ohio Department of Health announced on Friday the first known H3N2v-related death.
A 61-year-old Madison County woman passed away earlier this week.
Lab tests confirmed that the woman had been infected with the swine-related flu.
ODH officials said that the woman had multiple underlying conditions, but the influenza virus could have contributed to her death.
According to the ODH, the woman had direct contact with swine at the Ross County Fair before becoming ill.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said the main risk factors are direct exposure to swine. The CDC said that the virus does not spread easily from person to person.
Ohio currently has 102 reported cases of H3N2v statewide. Those with confirmed cases are between the ages of 6 months and 61 years.
