India : Swine Flu Claims its Fifth Victim in Two Months

Article from Daiji World :

" Swine flu claimed yet another life, this time of puerperal woman from Shimoga district, on Saturday July 9. She was convalescing after giving birth to a baby recently.

As Asha (28) was suffering from incessant fever, she was admitted into KMC Hospital Manipal about a week back. As she showed symptoms similar to swine flu, her swab samples were subjected to tests. After finding that she had contracted H1N1 virus, she was kept in the intensive care unit and treated.

Asha, who delivered 16 days ago, breathed her last on Saturday morning. Her child is reported to be hale and healthy. With her death, the number of those who died of swine flu in the district during the last two months has risen to five. Out of them, two were from this district, and one each from Shimoga and Bellary districts."
