Woman Hospitalized in Nahariya With Swine Flu Symptoms

Patient, 60, was passenger on flight from Madrid whose passengers had been advised to 'quarantine themselves.'

A 60-year-old woman has been hospitalized under quarantine in Nahariya while she undergoes examinations for swine flu.

The hospital reported Tuesday that the woman is in good health but checked herself into the hospital after she returned to Israel from a trip to Cuba on Iberia flight 3752 through Madrid. Passengers on flight 3752 had been advised to voluntary quarantine themselves after a fellow passenger on the flight was diagnosed with bird flu.

If the woman does have swine flu, it would bring to five the number of Israelis diagnosed with the virus so far.
