Nepal : More people opting for H1N1 screening

Via The Himalayan Times :

The number of people going for swine flu screening is increasing with an increased risk of swine flu, health authorities say. 

As the risk of H1N1 virus, commonly known as swine flu virus, is increasing, the number of people going for tests out of suspicion is also on the rise.

The Epidemiology and Disease Control Division under the Ministry of Health and Population has confirmed that five people have been victims of swine flu virus, also known as H1N1 virus, in the Kathmandu Valley so far. 

Of more than 800 people, whose blood samples authorities sent for swine flu tests to National Public Health Laboratory from January to date, 30 tested positive. NPHL is the sole lab in the country for H1N1 screening"
