swine flu in delhi

The national capital has recorded its first swine flu deaths with a 31-year-old man and a 38-year-old woman succumbing to the H1N1 Swine flu in India
influenza virus, hospital authorities said on Thursday.

Samrat Pandya, 31, a resident of Gurgaon, died on Thursday morning following two cardiac arrests, four days after he was rushed to the Ram Manohar Lohia Hospital (RML) in New Delhi.

He had been kept on a ventilator and his heart and lungs stopped working, said N.K. Chaturvedi, the hospital's medical superintendent.

The other death was of Renu Gupta, who died Wednesday night also following two cardiac arrests.

With the two Delhi deaths, the national death toll has risen further.

Gupta, a resident of Model Town, had returned from Singapore on Aug 15 and had developed flu symptoms.

"She went to private doctors who asked her to visit a designated government facility. She visited the RML hospital on Aug 20 in a critical condition. She was gasping and was immediately admitted and put on ventilator," Chaturvedi told reporters.

Chaturvedi said her sample was sent to the NCDC (National Centre for Disease Control), previously known as the National Institute of Communicable Diseases (NICD) and she "tested highly positive for H1N1".

Pandya, he said, had no travel history or contact with any H1N1 infected patient.
