A 19-year-old construction worker in the north who was infected with H1N1 flu virus fell from a third-floor scaffold and suffered serious injuries, dying two days later at Rambam Medical Center in Haifa. Although the Health Ministry could not prove that he fell due to dizziness or weakness caused by the flu, he was recognized as the 35th Israeli victim of this strain of flu on Monday. In addition, a 57-year-old man who suffered from chronic illness and was infected with H1N1 died at Tel Avi Sourasky Medical Center, bringing the total number of fatalities of the virus to 36.
