Seventh case of swine flu confirmed in Israel

A student from Mexico was confirmed late Monday night as the seventh case of swine flu in Israel, Army Radio reported. At least 61 people have been killed by the epidemic around the world, and the World Health Organization has confirmed 4,800 cases, including the first in mainland China. On Monday, China scrambled to find and quarantine more than 200 people on the infected man's flight from the US, though the University of Missouri campus where he had been studying planned no special precautions.
