Michigan officials say five state residents have died from swine flu, three more than previously reported.
The state Department of Community Health said Thursday the deceased include a 28-year-old Madison Heights police officer who lived in Macomb County, a 44-year-old Oakland County man and a 63-year-old Macomb County woman.
Officer Ryan Settlemoir died last Friday at the University of Michigan Hospital in Ann Arbor. The Oakland man died Monday, and the Macomb woman died Wednesday.
The state says it's now only tracking the most severe cases of the H1N1 virus, so Michigan's numbers reflect a small portion of the big picture.
Michigan had 655 confirmed cases of swine flu as of last week.
