A 76-year-old man died Monday morning in Petah Tikva's Beilinson Hospital, potentially from complications related to swine flu. The man suffered from heart disease and was also diagnosed as infected with the H1N1 flu virus. The Health Ministry said that while there was no certainty as to the cause of death, a connection to swine flu could not yet be ruled out, and so the man's death was counted as the ninth case of death from the H1N1 virus in Israel.
