Two more Israelis suffering from swine flu died on Thursday afternoon, bringing the total number of Israeli fatalities from the virus to 16.
A 66-year-old man who was suffering other serious diseases passed away at Haifa's Rambam Hospital, and a 60-year-old woman with cancer succumbed to the disease abroad.
The Health Ministry stressed that although the two were also suffering from another illness, the H1N1 virus could not be ruled out as the reason for their deaths, and said it was counting them as Israel's 15th and 16th fatalities.
