Israel's second victim to die of swine flu was announced by the Health Ministry Sunday evening. The victim, a 24-year-old woman, was hospitalized over the weekend in the Western Galilee Hospital in Nahariya suffering from multiple health issues, including fever and difficulty breathing. Blood samples taken from her confirmed that she was infected with H1N1 virus. The Health Ministry emphasized that the public was not urged to take extra measures apart from those already in place following the discovery that woman's demise was a result of swine flu.
