Delhi government confirmed two more H1N1 deaths on Friday, even as a third suspected death was reported from another city hospital.
According to the state swine flu control room, a 50-year-old woman from a Jaipur hospital and a 43-year-old man admitted to Apollo hospitals succumbed to the virus on Friday. Both patients had been admitted in the first week of February. They were also suffering from hypertension and diabetes, which aggravated the presentation of H1N1 virus. Both patients succumbed to respiratory complications, officials said. This year's H1N1 death toll now stands at 7.
Another suspected H1N1 death was reported at Safdarjung hospital, where a two-year-old boy — referred from a private hospital on Thursday at a critical stage — died on Friday morning. A senior doctor said, "The patient was in a critical state with acute respiratory symptoms, and he had a confirmed diagnosis of H1N1. We had admitted him to ICU, but he died in the morning after he went into respiratory distress." Delhi government is yet to confirm this as a swine flu death.
