Delhi Reports Over 100 New Positive Swine Flu Cases

Positive cases of swine flu in Delhi have gone up to 3914 after the 108 newly reported cases. The number of samples tested has also gone up considerably in comparison to the last few days.

Dr Charan Singh, nodal officer for swine flu, Directorate of Health Services (DHS) said, "On Friday, 557 samples were tested. The number of samples which tested positive for the H1N1 virus was 108. This has taken the total number of cases reported this season to 3,914. No fresh death was reported today. So far 11 deaths have been reported."

Experts claimed the cases would now decline but the number of swine flu cases persists without any change in intensity.

Doctors report that samples sent for testing at state government hospitals continue to come late. Currently, AIIMS, VP Chest Institute and NCDC are the three government laboratories besides designated private laboratories, which are testing swine flu samples.

After the claims of the new study by Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) that the swine flu strain in India has undergone mutation and has become more infectious now, DHS said the reports were contradictory to what researchers from the National Centre for Disease Control (NCDC) have found.

"We have already consulted to researchers in NCDC. The strain is the same," said Dr Singh.
