 Government Efforts Played Crucial Role In Containing Swine Flu: Soni

Information and Broadcasting Minister Ambika Soni on Saturday claimed that the spread of swine flu pandemic had been largely contained with the efforts of Government and crucial role played by media in educating people about the deadly disease.

Addressing media after inaugurating a two-day film festival of short documentaries by well-known photographer and art historian Benoy K Behl in the national capital, Soni said: "The Government has been successful in providing information to people on swine flu. Even television channels have played a major role in educating people by inviting doctors and experts in their studios every day to provide information about the deadly virus."
