Jamnagar,Bhavnagar,Rajkot Saurashtra Swine Flu News Samachar

Saurashtra first confirmed swine flu case detected in Bhavnagar.

The first confirmed case of swine flu in
Saurashtra has been reported from Bhavnagar where a nursing student has tested positive with the deadly H1N1 virus.

Besides, test reports in more than half-a-dozen suspected cases from Rajkot and Jamnagar are awaited.

So far, swine flu has claimed three lives in the state, one in
Vadodara and two in Ahmedabad.

More than a dozen suspected cases have been reported mainly at Rajkot and Jamnagar districts, but this is the first case that has tested positive.

Authorities at the Sir Thaktsinhji (ST) Hospital in Bhavnagar have confirmed that one of the two students, whose blood samples had been sent to the B J Medical College, has tested positive. “The student has been quarantined at home and is being given proper treatment.

He has been showing signs of improvement,” said a doctor with the S T Hospital.
The patient is a resident of Shardanagar area in Bhavnagar and is a third-year nursing student at the Bhartiya Vidyapith in Pune.

He, along with other students from the state, returned after schools and colleges in Pune were shut down owing to the swine flu scare. Apparently, when he and other students did not get train tickets, they hired a taxi all the way to Gujarat.

Last Sunday, the boy and another student were taken to the S T Hospital for tests.

They had shown symptoms like high fever, cough and cold and their blood samples were sent to Ahmedabad for testing the same day.

Meanwhile, test reports of three other cases at the Rajkot Civil Hospital are now awaited. The patients include a neurosurgeon and a youngster, who had just been on a trip to Lonavala.

In the last two days, five suspected cases have been reported at the
G G Hospital in Jamnagar.

Authorities at the G G Hospital said that while reports of two cases have come out negative, in other three cases, the reports are still awaited.
