A tenth Israeli victim of the swine flu died on Tuesday, at Jerusalem's Hadassah Ein Kerem Hospital. The 62-year-old woman was also suffering from other serious illnesses, according to the Health Ministry. On Monday morning, the eighth and ninth victims of H1N1 were announced. One was a 76-year-old heart patient who died at the Rabin Medical Center-Hasharon Campus in Petah Tikva. While the man had also been diagnosed as being infected with the H1N1 flu, the role the illness played in his death was not certain. However, the ministry's policy is to attribute the deaths of those infected with H1N1 to the virus even when the cause of death is uncertain. The other victim, a 67-year-old man hospitalized with pneumonia who had also contracted swine flu, died in the Rabin Medical Center-Beilinson Campus, also in Petah Tikva. In this case too, the ministry said there was no certainty as to the cause of death.
