Swine flu count reaches 50

 “Six new cases of swine flu have been reported – three from Delhi, two from Bangalore and one from Mumbai. All of them have been quarantined at identified health facilities and their contacts are being traced,” a health ministry statement said.

In Delhi, a nine-year-old boy who returned from the US on June 11 tested positive. He reported himself to the hospital after he developed swine flu-like symptoms on June 17. A 28-year-old man who travelled from Egypt on June 13 also tested positive for swine flu.

In the third case, a 66-year-old mother contracted swine flu from her son, who had tested positive on June 17. The capital accounts for four of the five human-to-human transfer cases in the country.
