Nashik/Pune/New Delhi: A 38-year-old doctor died of swine flu at the Nashik civil hospital this morning.


The deceased Dr Rupesh Gangurde was admitted to a private hospital on Monday after he complained of vomitting and fever, hospital sources said.

His blood samples were sent to Pune for testing after which the report tested positive for H1N1, they said.

Gangurde was brought to the Nashik Civil hospital last night where he died at 0230 hours, they said.

Two more suspected swine flu patients - Vinod Borkul (21) and Rishikesh Kulkarni (26) - have been admitted to the Nashik Civil hospital.

While Borkul tested negative for the viral infection, Kulkarni's report is still awaited.

he doctor is the first victim of swine flu in Nashik.


Meanwhile with the death of a 29-year-old woman who succumbed to the deadly swine flu virus in Pune on Wednesday took the country's swine flu death toll to 14. Shrawani Deshpande died due to bilateral pneumonia following severe lung infection caused by the H1N1 virus at around 2:30 AM this morning. Deshpande who was a resident of Kothrud area in Pune, died at the Sasoon General Hospital.


On Tuesday, a 62-year old Thane woman and a Vadodara girl had succumbed to the deadly virus.


Shahida Abdul Aziz from Pune was admitted to the Noor Hospital in Byculla and a (H1N1) virus was detected in her body only after her death.


In Vadodara, the girl fell prey to the flu, taking Gujarat's toll to two.


Meanwhile, doctors in New Delhi have been observing the nature of HINI virus to contain the mortality rate of the disease, Randeep Guleria, professor of medicine said.


"It is a self limiting disease so even if it spreads to the community, most people will become alright without treatment. Our aim should not be from containment point of view but to pick up the higher risk people and those who have higher chance of dying and treat them so that the death rate is low", Dr. Guleria.


Dr. Guleria also said they are observing the nature of the virus and until it changes its form, it is not a serious concern.


"Serious concern is not there as far as the mortality is concerned. But number of cases will increase. People need to be told that they need not worry. We need to observe it very closely and do good surveillance", Dr. Guleria, added.


With the increasing number of swine flu cases, the Central Government has unveiled fresh measures to control the spread of disease by allowing private labs to conduct tests and private hospitals to provide treatment.
