Young man another victim of flu virus

January 25, 2011 18:27

A 35-year-old man who was hospitalized two weeks ago with complications from the H1N1 flu virus at Hadassah University Medical Center in Jerusalem’s Ein Kerem died on Tuesday at the Rabin Medical Center-Beilinson Campus. He was transferred there to be attached to a special device meant to keep him breathing, but it did not succeed.

The Health Ministry continues to urge the public, especially those at high risk, to get vaccinated. So far, only 15 percent of the general population and 56% of the high-risk population have gotten their free shots
