Two women have died of swine flu at the Rajkot Civil Hospital over the last three days, hospital sources said Wednesday.
Meena Varaniya, a resident of Gandhigram area of Rajkot, died two days back at the hospital where she was admitted after being infected by the H1N1 virus, sources said. She died after four days of treatment.
Another woman, Radha Karsanbhai (19), a native of Chotila town in Surendranagar district, was admitted to the hospital on January 13 after suffering from high fever and cold.
Radha was later found to be suffering from swine flu. She succumbed to the infection last night, sources added.
The district health department has, meanwhile, denied an outbreak of the deadly infection and said both the women caught infection when they had gone outside the district. Rajkot, Surendranagar, Vadodara, Jamnagar and Kutch had been listed by the health department as H1N1-afflicted districts earlier this month as authorities stepped up efforts to contain the virus' spread ahead of an expected onset of visitors from outside the state for various business and tourism events.
