 Experts Anticipate Rise in Swine Flu Due to Rain
The Delhi Government held an emergency review meeting on swine flu today and put all the designated hospitals on alert. Experts say that the sudden nip in the air due to unseasonal rain may lead to rise in swine flu cases.


"I held a review meeting on swine flu. There is no dearth of medicines and also checked the facilities. We have also put the hospitals designated to treat swine flu on alert. Doctors, if they think suitable, should immediately put patients on oseltamivir, if they show symptoms like cough, cold and temperature between 100-101 degrees celsius," said Satyendra Jain.

"A total 440 people were tested for the H1N1 influenza virus out of which 111 turned positive," said a senior official from the Health department.

Meanwhile, 111 new cases of swine flu were reported today taking the total figure to 3110 in the city. The death toll still stands at 10. "A total 440 people were tested for the H1N1 influenza virus out of which 111 turned positive," said a senior official from the Health department.
