India : Two more swine flu deaths in Delhi

Via Times of India :

" NEW DELHI: Two more persons died of swine flu in Delhi and seven new cases were reported in the city on Tuesday. This brings the total number cases of H1N1 influenza in the city to 54. Sources said that a patient diagnosed positive for H1N1 infection died at Base Hospital in Delhi Cantonment on Monday, while another death was reported from a private hospital.

"It is not clear whether the deaths reported are of persons from Delhi or of those who came from outside the city. We are verifying the reports," said a senior health official. Delhi has already reported five deaths due to swine flu - three victims were from outside Delhi. Health experts fear the number of cases of swine flu may increase due to rains. "High-risk patients like children, pregnant women and critically-ill people need to be extra careful," said a doctor."
