BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- Another Palestinian has died of swine flu, bringing the death to four from the H1N1 virus in the West Bank, the Ministry of Health said Wednesday.

Some 160 people have the virus, which has spread in the northern cities of the West Bank, particularly in Jenin, the ministry's general director of primary health care told Ma'an.

The ministry has qualified teams to treat the virus across the West Bank, Assad al-Ramlawi added.

Al-Ramlawi urged ill people, especially those with low immunity, to go to hospital and take the necessary antibiotics.
