A pregnant and overweight 33-year-old woman who had signs of the H1N1 flu for a week before going to the doctor went to Jerusalem's Bikur Holim Hospital in Sunday where her fetus was found to be dead a week before term. When her condition deteriorated, she was rushed to Hadassah University Medical Center in Jerusalem's Ein Kerem, but she died despite all the efforts of doctors to save her. She was the 23rd Israeli to due of complications of the H1N1 flu out of more than 3,000 to have been infected. The Health Ministry reiterated that people at high risk for flu complications -- the chronically ill, the obese, pregnant women and smokers -- should go to the doctor if they develop flu symptoms of fever, muscle pains and a runny noise.
