"The girl had congenital heart disease and was operated for the same in 2008. She was first admitted in Kilbil Children hospital on March 25. After her condition deteriorated, she was shifted to Kasturba hospital. But her condition worsened and she died of cardio respiratory failure," said Dr Mangala Gomare, epidemeology cell in-charge in BMC.

The other two victims were a 66-year-old man from Walkeshwar and a 74-year-old man from Malad. "The Walkeshwar resident was getting treatment for swine flu. Since there was no improvement in his condition, he was admitted on March 19. He was a diabetic and he also had hypertension, apart from suffering from other secondary illnesses like inflammatory bowel disease and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease," said Dr Gomare.

The city has so far seen 1,562 positive swine flu cases and 42 deaths.
