A 20-year-old woman from Holon was the fourth case of the swine flu epidemic confirmed in Israel on Sunday afternoon.
The woman returned from Mexico earlier in the day with flu-like symptoms, and is now in isolation at Tel Aviv's Ichilov Hospital in what was described as a good condition.
The other passengers on the woman's flight from Madrid, as well as her close family, were requested to stay at home as much as possible for the next week, as a precaution.
A number of additional suspected cases were under observation in isolation in hospitals around the country.
