India : 51-yr-old H1N1 patient in critical state in Pune

Article via DNA India :

" After a lull of many months, swine flu infection has reared its head again. A 51-year-old rickshaw puller residing in Katraj was tested positive for the infection and is currently in a critical condition at Bharati Hospital and Medical College.

Hospital dean Dr Vivek Saoji confirmed that a H1N1 patient was shifted to the hospital from a smaller private nursing home where he had been undergoing treatment for a few days.

“He was shifted here on March 6 after he tested positive for H1N1 infection. He is on ventilator support and is in critical condition,” said Saoji.

However, he added that an isolated case of the infection should not spread panic as stray cases do keep getting reported, though not of such severity after pandemic subsided."
