In 2018, out of 22,705 samples tested, 2,419 patients tested positive but the number who died touched 225.

Health Minister Raghu Sharma appealed to the people not to fear swine flu.

In case of symptoms such as cold and joint ache, the patient should rush to the nearest health center or hospital.

Sharma said the biggest challenge was to cure the patients and check the rising number of patients. The reason for the outbreak of the disease can be traced later.
