Samples of five people, brought to Sanjay Gandhi Post Graduate Institute of Medical Sciences (SGPGI) with symptoms of the dreaded H1N1 virus, were found positive, doctors said.

T.N. Dhole, head of SGPGI's microbiology department, confirmed the swine flu cases.

Three of the infected people were SGPGI staffers, two of them technicians. The other two are from the city's Telibagh area.

An elderly person from the city's Gomtinagar area had died of swine flu at a private hospital Wednesday.

Meanwhile, dengue too is spreading in the city with four people testing positive for the fever.

The health department has swung into action to control the spread of swine flue and dengue.

Last year too, many cases of the two diseases were reported in the city.
