India : Death shows swine flu is still around

Via Mid Day :

" Two months after last H1N1 fatality and just weeks after authorities said swine flu threat largely over, docs shocked as disease claims 43-year-old Pimpri-Chinchwad resident.

43-year-old resident of Pimpri-Chinchwad succumbed to H1N1 after a battle of nearly a week. Medical experts said the death was reason for worry as the district administration had recently declared that provisions of the Epidemic Diseases Act might be lifted since the city and its vicinity had more or less become free of swine flu, the previous H1N1 death was recorded two months ago.

In the latest case, Pimple Gurav resident Basil Vanjari was admitted to Sahyadri hospital on Karve Road a week ago and was initially suspected to be suffering from pneumonia."
