A letter has been sent to Meerut asking them to be cautious about the swine-flu in the region.
A 67-year-old woman from Meerut who was undergoing treatment for swine-flu died on September 24 in a private hospital in Noida’s Sector 62.
The woman and her 73-year-old husband are residents of Jagriti Vihar in Meerut and came to Noida after being diagnosed with swine-flu. While the woman died on Tuesday, her husband is still undergoing treatment in Fortis hospital and is responding well to the treatment.
As per the sources in the hospital, the deceased was not responding well to the treatment as she was diabetic and had kidney problem.
The Chief Medical Officer (CMO), Gautam Budh Nagar, Dr Anurag Bhargava, said that a letter has been sent to Meerut, asking them to be cautious about the swine-flu in the region.
He said no fresh case of swine flu has been reported from Noida till now and extra precaution has been taken by the authority.
“All the treatment, facilities and medicines are available and we have asked people to take precautions and avoid infections. We have also asked them to stay at home in case of fever and other symptoms,” the CMO added.
Meanwhile, in January this year, around seven official cases were reported in Noida with two deaths.
Talking to CitySpidey, Dr. Anand Srivastava said that diabetic people should take extra precaution and consult a doctor immediately when they have a cold, cough or fever.
He said, swine flu has three categories A, B and C. While A and B are common, the category C can prove to be fatal and can lead the patient directly to the ventilator.
