Swine flu: Three die, 52 test positive in last 48 hours in Bhopal

BHOPAL: Swine flu continues unabated in Madhya Pradesh capital despite with three deaths being reported on Saturday and another 52 new infections reported in the last 48 hours. District health office raised yet another alert, given the changing weather condition.

“A sudden drop in temperature is expected. We are requesting all citizens to avoid exposure and visit a doctor in case of any complications from prolonged cold and cough,” said district chief medical and health officer Dr Veena Sinha. She said there was an expected drop in H1N1 infections in the recent past.

Some 96 patients suspected for H1N1 were tested in the last 24 hours. 30 of them tested positive for the deadly influenza. Around 63 samples were sent for testing to Indian Council of Medical Research (ICMR) laboratory on Saturday.

Three swine flu deaths reported from Bhopal are being attributed to private hospitals. All three are women. One patient shifted from BMHRC to Hamidia hospital on Saturday.

So far 46 H1N1 deaths have been reported from Bhopal and some 352 have tested positive for the deadly contagion this year.
