Swine flu death toll rises to 14 in West Bank

Jan. 6, 2013 11:36 A.M. (Updated: Jan. 9, 2013 4:24 P.M.)
RAMALLAH (Ma’an) -- A child and woman have died after contracting swine flu in the northern West Bank, bringing the death toll this winter to 14, the Palestinian health ministry said on Sunday.

Health official Asaad al-Rimlawi said all those who died from the H1N1 virus had low immune systems. Many of the 365 Palestinians who are being treated for virus have recovered and are in good health, he said.

The ministry said on Friday that H1N1 cases had also been recently recorded in Jordan, Turkey, Saudi Arabia and Yemen.

Swine flu has become a seasonal disease according to the World Health Organization.
