Two people - a 14-year-old boy and 43-year-old woman who suffered from serious chronic illness and were infected with H1N1 flu - died on Thursday. The boy was at Rehovot's Kaplan Medical Center, while the woman died at Sheba Medical Center at Tel Hashomer. Even though the connection could not be proven, they were listed by the Health Ministry as the 73rd and 74th Israeli victims of this strain of influenza.
