Even Gujarat Health Minister and Bollywood Star Undergo Treatment for H1N1!
Swine flu appears to be raging in India having claimed around 1200 lives since this January, with the worst affected States being Gujarat, Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s home State, and Rajasthan. In the South, Hyderabad has been hit too.
Gujarat health minister and state assembly speaker both have already tested positive for swine flu. Even celebrities have not been spared.
A top Bollywood actress, Sonam Kapoor, is down with it.
Deaths are being reported almost daily and I do not think the Indian government and the media are taking it seriously. I hardly see any coverage for it in the broadcast media.
I have a selfish interest in hoping that it does not go out of control!
