The Health Ministry confirmed two additional cases of swine flu in Israel on Friday, both in men who returned from visits to the US. A 22-year-old who suffered flu-like symptoms upon returning to Israel was admitted to the Hillel Yaffa Hospital in Hadera. He traveled from New York on Continental flight number 090, which landed in Israel on Thursday. The second case was a 28-year-old who was admitted to Netanya's Nordau Hospital with a fever. He traveled from the US via London, on BMI flight BD762, which landed at Ben Gurion International Airport on Thursday at 11am. The Health Ministry called on passengers from either flight suffering symptoms of the epidemic to consult with medical professionals. The infections brought the total of confirmed swine flu cases in Israel to 16.
