JERUSALEM (JTA) — Two more Israelis died after contracting swine flu, bringing the death total as a result of the virus to nine.
Two men, aged 76 and 67, both with underlying medical conditions, died Monday at different Petach Tikvah hospitals.
A dozen other Israelis were reported to be in serious condition in intensive care units throughout the country.
Last week an autopsy showed that one man recorded as dying from swine flu had died of another cause.
There have been 2,332 confirmed cases of swine flu in Israel.
