India : 3 more H1N1 death take toll to 19

From Times of India :

" NAGPUR: The death of three more H1N1 positive women in the isolation ward of Government Medical College and Hospital on Thursday, has again underlined the higher susceptibility of women to the virus. Although all the three women died on Thursday, the hospital declared their death as H1N1 positive only on Friday after their reports were received from National Institute of Virology (NIV), Pune.

Each of them had some other underlying condition like diabetes, sickle cell and pregnancy. The death of these women has brought the death toll of swine flu patients at GMCH to 13 since April 1. Of these, 11 deaths have occurred since August 5."
