India : Flu victim remained undiagnosed for many days

Via Times of India :

" JAIPUR: Prior to being brought to Sudha Hospital, the flu victim, Seema Pareta, had undergone treatment at a local hospital in Jhalawar but her condition did not improve.

On June 27, the doctors put her on ventilator, and took her swab samples for swine flu test.

The reports, which arrived after three days, revealed that Seema was suffering from the disease.

Following her death, the doctors administered tamiflu tablets to those who had come in contact with her over the past few days.

G S Sisodiya, chief medical and health officer of Kota said, "As a preventive measure, we have administered tamiflu tablets to those who had come into contact with her in the past few days so as to stop the disease from spreading."

Health director B R Meena said, "We will soon conduct an elaborate survey to find out if there are any more cases of swine flu in the district."
