Authorities say a Graham County man has died of complications from the hantavirus, the first reported case of the disease this year.
The Graham County Health Department says the 39-year-old man died earlier this month, but no additional information was immediately available Wednesday.
The hantavirus is a rare disease that exhibits symptoms similar to the flu including fever, muscle aches and vomiting.
Thirty-four cases of the virus have been recorded in Arizona since 2001. Of those, 38 percent were fatal.
