Fears rose in the town of Hasrayel in the Jbeil district after the owner of a poultry farm reportedly died of swine flu.
Media reports said the man didn't see a doctor until his condition worsened and he died at Maounat hospital.
However, the town's mayor, Nassif Helou, denied to Voice of Lebanon radio station that the man had died of swine flu.
"He had problems in his liver," he said.
Earlier this month, the World Health Organization declared the swine flu pandemic officially over. At least 18,449 people have died worldwide since the outbreak began in April 2009.
