Swin flu killed 81 people in Delhi in 2009 and 56 in 2010. In 2011, only two deaths were reported from Delhi.

Swine flu cases have been reported from at least 10 states this year. It has claimed 15 lives in Tamil Nadu, Himachal Pradesh and Maharashtra.

Across the country, the disease claimed more than 2,700 lives from May to December last year.

The peak season for swine flu infections starts in May as monsoon approaches. More than 46,000 people were affected by the virus from May to December 2011, according to health ministry figures.
