India : Swine flu cases increase in August

Via Times of India :

" AHMEDABAD: There has been a sudden spurt in the number of swine flu cases in the city with at least four deaths recorded in the month of August. This has been the highest number of cases in the last four months. In the city's rural outskirts too, on Friday two cases of swine flu were reported from Karakthal and Dholka area. The contacts of these swine flu cases have been kept under watch.

A clear pattern that has emerged is that swine flu cases have a tendency to increase in August, when the rains begin to subside. If it was 54 cases last year in August with four deaths it is 33 cases and exactly four deaths in August this year too. This has led health authorities to gear up surveillance and awareness activities."
