Suspected H1N1 patient dies in Rajkot City.

A suspected H1N1 patient died on Wednesday at Rajkot Civil Hospital, which has so far registered five deaths due to swine flu.

Also in Jamnagar City, a 19-year-old woman tested positive for swine flu after she was admitted to GG Hospital on Wednesday.

According to hospital officials, Samir Diwan (18) succumbed to high fever. His report on throat swab sample is awaited.

"Samir, a native of Than Gujarat, was down with fever at his uncle's place in Morbi City. As there was no improvement in his condition, he was shifted to civil hospital here. We collected samples of his throat swab, sputum and blood and sent them to Ahmadabad’s civil hospital for testing. However, before the test report could arrive, the patient succumbed after five hours of treatment," a hospital official said.

One more swine flu suspect Arti Mandan (2) from Shastrinagar Society in Gandhigram area was shifted to Rajkot Civil Hospital. "As Arti was running high fever since past few days, we shifted her to the isolation ward and collected her throat swab samples," the official said. The condition of another swine flu patient Dharmishta (14) deteriorated and she was put on ventilator.

Meanwhile, the positive report of swine flu suspect from Patel Colony area in Jamnagar has caused widespread panic among the staff of GG Hospital (Guru Govind Singh Hospital Jamnagar), including doctors and nurses, who volunteered their throat swab samples for testing.

"The testing could not be carried out. Instead, we have provided them with Tamiflu tablets as a preventive measure," said a hospital official.

Of the swine flu suspects, the hospital admitted a 13-year-old boy from Manavadar, who was suffering from fever and chronic cough. "The boy has been quarantined for obvious reasons.
