Swine Flu kills six in green city Bangalore


The swine flu (H1N1) toll in green city Bengaluru went up to six. A 30 year old woman succumbed to the virus on Tuesday. There was some confusion as the civic body suggested she suffered from swine flu while the private hospital denied it. There has been a similar case in Chennai where a hospital failed to notify the authorities about a swine flu case.
When contacted the hospital authorities said there had been no H1N1-related death in their hospital. According to protocol, every hospital has to inform the BBMP of any suspected H1N1 case, confirmed case or death due to the disease. Every day, the civic agency has to compile a list of cases and deaths.
