Swine flu cases on the rise in India
Swine flu seems to be the new worry for India especially for the people living bigger cities.

In Delhi, 166 new cases of swine flu were reported. With the reporting of these 166 cases, the total number of cases of swine flu, as of July 30, stand at 517 in India.

Till now, 736 people have lost their lives as a result of the viral infection.

The virus has three categories: A, B and C. While the first two categories, A & B, can be treated with Tamiflu, the third category, type C is extremely critical and requires immediate ventilator support.

Pune also registered two more deaths because of the infection. The total number of deaths in Pune since January this year has reached 82. More than 400 people have already tested positive for the infection in Pune. 

In Vadodra, three people have been reported to have died because of the flu. As per reports, this is the highest number of deaths due to swine flu in a single day in Vadodara. With 16 deaths being reported, the total number of cases has been 218.

Swine flu has been spreading rapidly every year in many cities across India, mostly because of lack of cleanliness. Despite the respective governments of the states claiming to be prepared to face the epidemic, the number of deaths has been crossing previous records every year. 

The World Health Organisation had even termed the spread of the flu as 'pandemic'. But a considerable and reliable cure seems a distant future. 

While the symptoms of swine flu are very severe, they generally begin with cold, fever, throat infection, dry cough and body pain.
