A 30-year-old Israeli man was pronounced dead on Saturday after being hospitalized with swine flu. The man, a resident of east Jerusalem, was checked into the Hadassah Ein Kerem Medical Center on Thursday suffering from severe flu symptoms, after a blood test revealed the potent flu virus strain was present in his blood stream.

The man was quarantined by hospital personnel while he was treated intensively for the disease, but despite their best efforts, the man passed away on Saturday.
