In the first swine flu fatality of the season in Rajasthan, a 52-year-old woman infected with H1N1 virus died at a private hospital here.
The woman identified as Neelama, an employee of Punjab National Bank, died of the flu yesterday, Chief Medical Officer of Kota Gagnendra Singh Sisodiya said today.
Neelima was admitted on Sunday and was later shifted to a private hospital, where she succumbed to her illness, he said, adding that one more person has been tested positive in the district and is being treated at a private hospital.
Meanwhile, alarmed by the first swine flue death of the season, the medical department has geared up for preventive measures and instructed the staff at Community Health Centres and Primary Health Centers to carry out a survey in the region, Sisodia said.
Two persons had died in Karnataka this week, while a 55-year-old woman succumbed at Shimla's Indira Gandhi Medical College in Himachal Pradesh on April 7 due to swine flu.
