 Uttarakhand Turns to Yoga Gurus to Tackle Swine Flu
The upcoming Kumbh Mela is sure to be a fertile ground for spread of swine flu. Therefore hermits and gurus who will descend here are being taught proper practice of hand washing in order to prevent the spread of the dreaded disease.

Pankaj Jain, chief nodal officer for swine flu in Uttarakhand said that the hermits would first be trained and then asked to spread awareness among devotees. "More than doctors, devotees will listen to hermits and religious leaders. So training these people about swine flu will yield results. People will listen to them and the awareness will spread faster," he added.

Jain also said that camps are being organized to spread awareness about swine flu. "Entry screening of passengers shall also be conducted to prevent spread of the disease here," he said.
