Public Health and Family Welfare Minister Shri Rustum Singh has appealed to the people of the state to get themselves examined at the nearest health centre if they are suffering from cold, cough, fever, severe headache and difficulty in breathing. Delay in examination might have serious effects on health. If flu is diagnosed in the examination, take the entire course of medicine on the doctor’s advice. Consume maximum hot liquids. Wash your hands with soap before touching nose, eyes and mouth. Keep a cloth over your mouth and nose while sneezing or coughing. Shri Singh said that due to rise in humidity and chill in the weather, the cases of swine flu seem to be increasing in the state and the country despite precautionary measures.

Samples of 131 suspected swine flu patients have been tested so far in the state from July to till date. Out of this 24 have been tested positive. With a 58-year-old woman succumbing to swine flu in Indore today, the number of swine flu deaths in state has risen to 4. This woman was a patient of diabetes and blood pressure and was on ventilator support for the last few days.
