India : One more succumbs to swine flu in state

Article from Times of India, excerpt :

" JAIPUR: Another swine flu death was reported in the state on Sunday. An 18-year-old man, resident of Karauli district, died of the disease. A quack in Karauli district was responsible for his slowly bleeding to death.

This is the second consecutive swine flu death in the past two days. Earlier, a pregnant woman, a resident of Jhalawar, had succumbed to the disease.

Manoj Kumar, a labourer in Delhi, had returned to his village Mared in Karauli in May with symptoms of swine flu. He was admitted to Sawai Man Singh Hospital in Jaipur nearly one-and-a-half months after contracting the disease. "This is because he was treated by a quack in his village for a month. After that he went to a hospital in Mandawar when he vomited blood," a medical and health department official and a doctor in Karauli said.

Doctors in Mandawar referred him to SMS in Jaipur, where he breathed his last. "He was brought to the hospital quite late when his condition had seriously deteriorated. He tested positive for swine flu and died under treatment," L C Sharma, SMS hospital superintendent, said."
