An obese 38-year-old woman who was infected with H1N1 flu virus died at Shaare Zedek Medical Center in Jerusalem, the Health Ministry announced on Wednesday. Her death was officially due to the flu. The death at Rehovot's Kaplan Medical Center of another young woman, aged 23, who suffered from a number of serious chronic illnesses and had H1N1 infection, was not blamed solely on the virus. Nevertheless, the two women were listed as the 68th and 69th victims of the flu strain.
