Death toll from H1N1 reaches 23

Odisha swine flu toll rises to six

The swine flu lab, which had become operational two years ago, is proving a boon for patients as reports are readily available in a short period of time. A resident of Bargarh, died of swine flu during treatment at VIMSAR at Burla in Sambalpur district today. Around 47 people have so far tested positive for the disease. Most of the patients have come from outside the state, he said. Numerous patients have come from places like Mumbai, Surat and Bengaluru. While most private hospitals sent samples to Delhi, it took long before the reports were received back.

Meanwhile, the authorities of the Health department are mulling to administer vaccine to medicos and medical staff deployed at the swine flu ward in hospitals after two doctors tested positive for swine flu. Harihar was admitted to the hospital on August 8. Until August 11, 204 out of 535 hospital patients were confirmed to have been infected with the seasonal influenza and the death toll reached 23, according to the Ministry of Health and Sport.

The measures initiated to deal with swine flu have failed to be effective as 16 of the 28 samples tested positive for the flu Sunday, which took the total number of H1N1 cases in state to 119 this year. "I do not have knowledge of one more death of swine flu patient in city's hospital".
