With the second round of H1N1 virus infections hitting the nation, this year the health departments in different states have already started preparing themselves against Swine Flu.
So far, as many as 25 people, including 13 children and a pregnant woman, were tested positive for the virus on Friday.
With the Friday’s reported infections, the total toll of the swine flu infection for the month went up to 250. In addition, more than 100 cases of the infections were recorded in June, this year.
The National Institute of Cholera and Enteric Diseases (NICED), has been analyzing the suspected cases of the infections.
Nearly five of the infected patients are under observation at the Infectious Diseases Hospital in Beliaghata.
Dr GT Ambe, Executive Health Officer of BMC, said, “About 30% of the city’s population has developed antibodies to the H1N1 virus, which is already in the air”.
He added that there is no reason to worry, as majority of the people in the city have already been administered with the antibodies.
They are now immune to the disease. He assured that the Tamiflu is effective enough in shielding the infected patients against any severity.
