Doctors assess extent of infection

SHEIKH NAZIR

Ganderbal, Feb 7:  To sensitize people about preventive measures and extent of swine flu threat, teams of doctors   continued to visit Tulmulla in Lar area of district Ganderbal on the third consecutive day today where a man died of swine flu recently. Ghulam Hassan Wani (50) a resident of Tulmulla and an employee of SKIMS was admitted in the hospital a week ago where he was diagnosed of swine flu. He passed away on Monday.
 Locals alleged that health authorities should come clear about the issue and not try to hide the facts. “If the death has occurred due to swine flu, the health authorities should tell the people to take precautionary measures, otherwise it will become an epidemic,” Ghulam Muhammad, a resident of Tulmulla said.
 When contacted Chief Medical Officer Ganderbal Mehmooda Kar told Greater Kashmir that situation is completely under control and there is nothing to worry. However, people should take precautions like frequent washing of their hands and not listen to rumours, which usually tend to generate panic.
 “Our teams are in the area to impart health education. We met the family members, relatives and neighbours of the deceased and took their blood samples for testing as a precautionary measure,” she said.
