52 new swine flu cases

NEW DELHI: The swine flu cases in the city crossed 200 on Wednesday with 52 new cases being reported by various hospitals and labs. The state health department claimed four people have died due the viral infection so far including a 15-year-old girl who succumbed to the disease at a private hospital recently.

One patient, who was confirmed positive for swine flu, succumbed to his condition at Ram Manohar Lohia hospital but officials said the patient was from Noida, Uttar Pradesh. "The authorities concerned in the state have been informed about the death," said the official.

He added that 32 out of 52 patients confirmed positive for swine flu on Wednesday were seeking treatment at home itself. "Their tests had been carried out at various path labs and we found that these patients were staying back at home because the symptoms were milder. The rest of the patients were found to be admitted at hospitals like Safdarjung,RML, Sir Ganga Ram, DDU and B L Kapoor hospital among others.

Swine flu was at its most virulent form when it initially spread in 2009. Till May 2010, 1,035 people had died of the disease in India and more than 10,000 were infected. "In 2011 and 2012, few such cases were reported. This year, however, there has been a noticeable rise in swine flu cases. It could be due to prolonged winter or because the virus which was always present in the environment is settling down again," said a senior doctor.
