Indian Medical Association honorary secretary-general K. K. Aggarwal said "We endorse the views of the World Health Organization and Ministry of Health, which clearly states that there is no need to panic and that swine flu should be treated like any other normal flu."

Dr. Aggarwal added that swine flu has not taken any epidemic shape this year. "Delhi had reported 16 deaths in 2013. Swine flu cases have gone up in the past two to three weeks."

Experts in the Directorate of Health Services (DHS) have said that the people staying near pig farms and slaughter houses should take special measures, as they are the ones who are being affected the most.

Swine flu symptoms include fever, cough, sore throat, body aches, and malaise. Occasionally, nausea, vomiting, diarrhoea and rash may also be present. Severe breathlessness and blood on coughing are ominous signs and need investigation and/or hospitalisation. Symptoms ordinarily last for one to two weeks.
