Swine Flu spreads to Israel, Spain

Jerusalem, Apr 28: An Israeli Hospital, Laniado Hospital today reported its first case of swine flu. The 26 year old patient allegedly returned from Mexico a few days back but has fully recovered.

The Israeli Health Ministry laboratory test confirmed swine flu. However, there are doubt if the flu virus belongs to the same strain that was found in Mexico.

The patient who tested positive for the virus is now in 'excellent condition'.

The second case of flu has been reported from Spain on Tuesday, Apr 28. The health minister, Trinidad Jimenez said earlier that 26 suspected cases of flu are under investigation.

India is screening the travelers from the west for the flu to contain it from entering into the country.

While the United Kingdom has advised against 'nonessential' travels to Mexico. The travel industry in Canada that got majority of its revenue from Canadians travelling to Mexico is also hit.
