"The swine flu situation in Telangana state is under control. There is no need for any apprehensions. Even though the cases are increasing over last 10 days, I think 16 cases were reported in last 12 days but all the cases are stable," he said.

Swine flu is caused by the H1N1 virus. H1N1 symptoms are similar to those produced by other influenza viruses - fever, cough, sore throat, body aches and respiratory problems.

Doctors say children, elderly people and those suffering from respiratory problems are highly susceptible to the virus.

The 2009 global outbreak of swine flu, or H1N1, claimed over 17,000 lives including 2,725 in India between May 2009 and November 2010.

In New Delhi, three people have died of the virus this year from around 30 cases reported.
