2 More Swine Flu Cases in Hyderabad

A day after the Centre issued a swine flu alert, two swine-flu cases were registered in Hyderabad on Sunday. According to sources, a 25-year-old pregnant woman and a 17-month-old child test positive for H1N1

Patients with swine were admitted to join Gandhi Hospital in the city, as it is the only government-run hospital that has an Isolation Ward and other facilities for treating the deadly disease.

The infant hailing from Ramgopalpet in Secunderabad was diagnosed with swine flu while undergoing treatment at a private hospital. The pregnant woman named Shashikala, is a resident of ECIL Crossroads and she was tested positive on December 26.

"Ten cases have been registered in the current year, apart from the two currently being treated at the swine flu Isolation Ward. Three of the patients had died and seven of them were discharged after successful treatment," said Dr. Narasimhulu, nodal officer at Gandhi Hospital.

Dr. Narasimhulu warned people to be careful when they visited places of mass congregations like Tirupati and Sabarimala. He cautioned people to observe cleanliness and also ensure hygiene in their surroundings.

"As the first two weeks of January are going to be chilly, people are advised to take precautions. Swine flu virus HI NI spreads easily in cold conditions," he said.
