Swine Flu Attack Persists in Low Temperature Regions

During the past few days, four persons have died due to swine flu in Haryana. Government sources report 10 more cases of the deadly disease in the state.

Ram Niwas, additional chief health secretary said that fever along with cough, cold and difficulty in breathing could be the possible symptoms of swine flu.


"In view of the prevailing cold weather conditions and fog, people, especially elderly and those suffering from disease or having low immunity and children, have been advised not to leave for early morning walks as the virus causing swine flu is very active during that time," he said.

Parents had also been advised not to send their children to schools in case they were suffering from any symptoms of swine flu or had cough and cold.

He said that school principals had also been requested to grant leave to such children. While listing precautionary measures, he said that people should avoid crowded places and should maintain a distance of minimum two feet while meeting others, especially those having symptoms of swine flu.

There are reports of death from Punjab, Indore and Bihar. Arrangements for the treatment are made where specialists have been deputed for the purpose.

In Indore, around 16 hospitals have been chosen for treating swine flu patients and a special ward has also been set up for such patients in the state-run Maharaja Yeshwantrao Hospital.
