Three more die of swine flu in Nashik

Swine flu has claimed three more lives in Nashik, taking the city’s toll in the dreaded pandemic to 31.

Three patients – Ganga Nivrutti Adaksul (35), Akash Ashrusha Kapse (33) and Heena Shaikh (14) of Nashik died of swine flu, Nashik Civil Hospital’s civil surgeon Assaram Bhalsingh said.

Before shifting to Nashik Civil Hospital, the trio were being treated in a private hospital for cold, fever and cough, he said.

A suspected swine flu patient Magduma Shaikh, also a resident of Nashik, died last night in the civil hospital, following which her relatives damaged the hospital’s furniture, Bhalsingh said.

“She was earlier treated in a private hospital and admitted to civil on Monday night in a serious condition,” Dr Bhalsingh said, adding her reports from Pune’s NIV are yet to received.

The health department has succeeded in controlling swine flu in rural areas of the district, he said.
