India : H1N1 claims one in Nashik

Via Times of India :

" PUNE: The swine flu virus claimed a 29-year-old woman in Nashik and infected five more people, all from Pune, in the last few days.

"The woman succumbed to the H1N1 virus at the civil hospital in Nashik on May 26. Besides, two cases of swine flu were reported from Pune last week, while three cases were reported in April," said state epidemiologist Pradip Awate. All these cases were reported way before the onset of monsoon, hence it would be wrong to link them to the rainy season, he added.

Meanwhile, R.R. Pardeshi, health chief of the Pune Municipal Corporation, said on Tuesday, "The situation is under control, we are monitoring it closely."
