 Hospitals Asked to be on Alert for Swine Flu

Hospitals in Mumbai are being warned to be on a watchful lookout for swine flu symptoms after three people died in the city due to the H1N1 virus.

A 27-year old pregnant woman, a 25-year old Bhandup resident and a one year old child from Mulund died in space of just two weeks due to the disease giving rise to fears of a second wave of swine flu infection in the city.

However Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) additional commissioner, Manisha Mhaiskar played down the fears saying that it was premature to believe that swine flu was once again on the rise.

"The H1N1 virus is in the environment. Swine flu cases had reduced drastically but we never had a long period without any cases. There is no need to panic", the head of BMC's epidemiology cell, Dr Daksha Shah said.
