The Gujarat government has imposed a ban on most public gatherings of five or more people in Ahmedabad in a bid to halt the spread of swine flu. Health officials have also asked people to wear masks as a precautionary measure. The weather systems this season have kept the humidity levels high and have also influenced the wind pattern across the plains of northwest India and adjoining areas, resulting in swine flu virus sustaining for a longer period.

The total death toll in India due to swine flu toll has now risen to 1115.
