 Panic Over Swine Flu Subsides in Mumbai
After the initial panic surrounding swine flu, people of Mumbai mustered enough courage to watch their favourite movies in the multiplexes which reopened after being shut for three days.

Multiplexes across Maharashtra, particularly in Mumbai and Pune were ordered to shut for three days by the state government.

Mumbaikars, who have been staying away from crowded places following the swine flu scare, rushed to catch their favourite movies as panic started to subside.

"It's feeling good. It was closed for few days for the betterment of public health. Now it's open, it's good now. We are back in action," said John Monterio, a moviegoer.

"I am feeling really really good that the theatres have reopened. Now we can actually go and see our favourite movies. It's a very good feeling," said Shruthi, another movie bug.

However schools and colleges across Mumbai are closed till August 19.

India recorded its first H1N1 case in Hyderabad in May and since then the virus has spread across the country with dozens of cases from Pune. The latest death toll in India is 28.
