    SYED BASHARAT
    SRINAGAR, Feb 4: After battling for life, for the last over a week, a middle aged man from Ganderbal today surrendered to Influenza-A H1N1 commonly known as Swine Flu here at Sher-e-Kashmir Institute of Medical Sciences (SKIMS).
    The deceased identified as Ghulam Hassan of Tulmula Ganderbal was working as head assistant in administration department of the SKIMS. Confirming the cause of his death, Dr Showkat Zargar, director SKIMS, said the lungs of the deceased were completely damaged by the virus. ?He was receiving artificial ventilation. Since his lungs were badly damaged, his life couldn?t be saved,? Dr Zargar informed, adding that the Institute has proper infrastructure and medicine available to cope up with the situation.
    Sources in the health department revealed that there is heightened viral activity including that of Influenza ?A H1N1 in Kashmir at present. ?Many samples have been tested positive for this strain of virus,? said a senior officer in the health department, pleading anonymity.
    However, Director SKIMS observed that reports of a major swine flu outbreak are false and people need not panic as the situation is not as bad as it is made out to be by rumour-mongers. ?The confusion among the people is mainly due to similarities between seasonal influenza and swine flu,? Dr Zargar said adding that the symptoms for both the ailments are the same, and both H1N1 and the influenza virus affect the upper respiratory system.

        The Daily Rising Kashmir: SKIMS employee dies of swine flu

        "Srinagar, Feb 04: An employee working at SKIMS as senior assistant in administration department died of swine flu in the hospital on Monday, officials said.

        ...When asked why the patient was kept in the general ward, he said the restrictions by World Health Organisation have been withdrawn.
        ?There is no need to panic as the guidelines and restrictions by WHO have been removed that were put in place two years back,? he said.
        ?It is not the kind of pan-endemic that broke out two years back.?

        ...Kashmir Epidemiology lab at Barzulla, concerned with the respiratory diseases like swine flu, refused to comment on the matter.

        However, senior health officials told Rising Kashmir they are deliberately hiding information to avoid ?negative publicity?.

        ?It is very unfortunate that officials of the epidemiology lab at Barzulla have kept it under wraps and are not disseminating information. If kept under wraps it would become epidemic and could have serious repercussions. They should have issued certain guidelines so that people may be able to take certain precautionary measures,? the official said, wishing anonymity...".
