India : Woman succumbs to Swine Flu in Gujarat

Via The Hindustan Times :

" A 60-year-old woman died of Swine Flu, taking the H1N1 death toll to two in Gujarat so far, health officials said on Wednesday.

The victim, identified as Yasmin Hussain succumbed to the viral infection at her residence in Juhapura area of the city on Tuesday, they said.

This is the first case of swine flu in the city, and second in Gujarat this year. Manhar Dodiya (52) was the first victim of swine flu in the state in 2012. He had died in Rajkot civil hospital Saturday last.

According to health officials, Yasmin was admitted to the VS hospital early last week following influenza like symptoms.

While she was undergoing treatment, samples of her saliva and blood was sent for testing. But before the test results arrived, her family members got her 'discharged against medical advice' and took her home."
