17-Year-Old Suffering from Swine Flu in Critical Condition

A seventeen-year-old girl was transferred to Petah Tikva’s Belinson Hospital earlier today (Tuesday) due to Swine Flu (H1N1).

She had originally been hospitalized at the Emek Afula Medical Center with what seemed to be a bad case of pneumonia, but was transferred once it was clear this was not the case.

The girl is currently breathing with the help of an ‘ECMO’ machine, which performs the jobs of one’s heart and lungs.
