Swine flu has knocked in Jharkhand. Four cases have been reported in three districts of the state Ranchi, Bokaro and Giridih. Confirming the swine flu, Dr Bhuvnesh Pratap Singh, campaign director, NHM, said that the infected patients were admitted to the hospital as a precautionary measure, as the test report of N1H1 has come positive. Out of the five infected, two have been discharged from Ranchi's Medica on Sunday after recovering and three are undergoing treatment. The Health Department has asked RIMS to be prepared regarding swine flu, after which the RIMS administration has reserved 15 beds in the isolation ward.
Experts say that swine flu is spread by the N1H1 virus. This is called N1H1 influenza. Seasonal illness in the infected is similar to the symptoms, so vigilance and caution should be taken. If there is no relief in seasonal illness for three to four days, a doctor should be consulted. However, there is no similarity between African Swine Flu and N1H1 spread in pigs. In such a situation, there is no need to be too frightened about the death of the pigs.
