BAGHDAD (AP) - All have been treated and fully recovered. Another 71 are in isolation, suspected of being infected with the virus.
The military says all of its personnel are being screened for
flu symptoms before they enter Iraq to limit the spread of the flu.
There are about 30 cases of the virus confirmed among Iraqis.
Iraqi health officials have confirmed the nation's first swine-flu related death -- a 21-year-old woman in the southern holy
Shiite city of Najaf.
The government is worried about the virus spreading as hundreds
of thousands of Shiite pilgrims make journeys to pray at shrines in
Najaf and Karbala.
In Karbala, health officials handed out masks and gloves during a recent festival.
