Maryland health officials have announced the state’s seventh swine-flu-related death.

Monday’s announcement came as Gov. Martin O’Malley prepared to announce the launch of a computer tracking system that will allow all hospitals in Maryland to share data on admittances, diagnoses and treatments. The announcement was scheduled at Prince George’s Community College in Largo.

State health officials said the latest swine flu death involves an elderly adult from the Washington area who already had serious underlying medical conditions. Other details about the case were not released.
