A 35-year-old woman died at the Hillel Yaffe Medical Center in Hadera after contracting the H1N1 virus. The woman was suffering from serious pre-existing illnesses. While swine flu could not be determined as the exclusive cause of death it could not be ruled out either.
The Health Ministry stated that this constitutes the 51th swine flu fatality in Israel. (Meital Yasur-Beit Or)
