Nursing students admitted to Gandhi Hospital, three stated to be in serious condition
Though the health officials are claiming that swine flu is under control in the state, 17 nursing students have been admitted to Gandhi Hospital
in Secunderabad after they displayed symptoms of having contracted the dreaded disease on Thursday.
It is believed that 3 of these students are in a serious condition.
The blood samples of the nursing students have been sent to Chest Hospital in Erragadda after the swine-flu like symptoms were noticed.
Meanwhile, the nursing students have complained that they are not being looked after well by the authorities at the hospital.
Earlier, Raghupathi, a person hailing from Jimmikunta in Karimnagar district, who was undergoing treatment for swine flu in Gandhi hospital, died on Thursday.
The health department authorities have sounded an alert, as the onset of monsoon is believed to be the reason for fresh cases of swine flu.
Swine flu coordinator at Chest Hospital said the humidity and the cold climate is ideal for the virus to spread rapidly, and urged people to be cautious over the disease.
The influenza has so far claimed the lives of 20 people in the state.
