      Israel's Health Ministry issued a warning Thursday of a new outbreak of swine flu, calling on the public to vaccinate themselves after one woman died of the H1N1 virus and at least five other women were hospitalized in serious condition.
      According to Israel's Ynet news site, Esther Aryeh, a 55-year-old mother of six from the southern community of Netivot , passed away earlier this week after fighting the disease for several weeks. She had not received her flu vaccine.
      "Had Esther gotten vaccinated, this might not have happened," Esther's husband Yehuda was quoted by Ynet as saying. "I call on everyone to get vaccinated. If the doctors say we should - then we must.'

        Swine flu victims jump to 13, 9 in serious condition

        After a woman was revealed on Thursday to have died from the H1N1 virus - commonly known as swine flu - an updated count was released by the Health Ministry showing there are 13 Israelis known to be suffering from the virus, with nine of them in serious condition.
        Several of those receiving treatment have existing additional illnesses heightening their risk of coming down with swine flu, and indeed the woman aged in her 50s who passed away from the disease was also suffering from background illnesses.
        She had been treated at Soroka Hospital in Be'er Sheva before being transferred to Beilinson Hospital in Petah Tikva around a month ago in very serious condition. Medical staff fought for several weeks to save her life but in the end she tragically died from the illness.
        The Health Ministry has called on the public to get a flu vaccine, noting the inoculation is also effective against H1N1.
