A 22-year-old man suffering from swine flu died Thursday at Jerusalem's Sha'are Tzedek Hospital. The Health Ministry stressed that although the young man was also suffering from another illness, the H1N1 virus could not be ruled out as the reason for his death, and said it was counting him as Israel's 14th swine flu fatality. So far, 2,670 people have been diagnosed with the virus in Israel, including 42 who have been hospitalized in serious condition.
