Swine Flu Attack begins in Rajasthan

In the past two days, two died and three cases tested positive for the H1N1 influenza in Rajasthan, India. The virus might be triggered by the sharp fluctuations in temperature.

The health department reported two deaths of swine flu, a woman, 33, of Bapu Nagar in Jaipur and another person, 31, from Kota. Three persons tested positive for the disease in Tonk, Sikar and Jaipur.


In Kota, a man with flu-like symptoms was admitted to MBS hospital on December 26. He was undergoing treatment for swine flu but his condition deteriorated and he died on Thursday.

The health department claimed that the situation is not severe. Surveys are being conducted in the neighborhood of patients who tested positive for the disease to find out if any other person is suffering from swine flu in the respective areas.

Medical teams have been sent to the area after he tested positive for the H1N1 virus and his family members were administered Tami flu tablets and survey was carried out in his neighbouring areas, the Chief Medical and Health Officer (CMHO) of Kota R N Yadav said.

Moreover, they are also trying to find out the source of infection.
