All civic hospitals in Mumbai have been reportedly asked to keep at least two ventilators on standby for H1N1 patients and an adequate stock of Tamiflu has been procured.

The BMC has also started a helpline over the outbreak.

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.

Symptoms for swine flu include high fever, headache, muscle pain, diarrhoea, vomiting, stomach pain and internal and external bleeding. It is transmitted to people primarily from ticks and livestock animals with an incubation period of up to nine days. Human-to-human transmission takes up to two weeks.
