After a doctor was found infected by H1N1 virus in Pune, three doctors in New Delhi have also tested positive on Friday. According to media reports, these doctors belong to Safdarjung Hospital and CGHS Hospital.

This has happened despite the reports that hospitals are cautious of the infection and are taking all the precautions.

There were reports that all the gate keepers, security men, doctors and even the visiting media personnel were all wearing surgical masks at the hospitals in New Delhi as hundreds of people, from pregnant women to students, flocked to the swine flu testing centre on Friday.

In New Delhi and NCR, since Thursday morning, around 500 people from the city state and adjoining satellite townships of Noida, Gurgaon and Faridabad have visited the hospital to get themselves tested - though mostly as precautionary.

Earlier, on Friday a doctor suffering from swine flu was admitted to the ICU of a hospital in Pune.

The doctor, who works with Inlaks hospital in camp area, has been kept in a ICU in a quarantined ward of the Sassoon General Hospital, according to R R Pardeshi, civic medical officer.

A 35-year-old man was also admitted to the Sassoon hospital last night after his blood samples tested positive for H1N1 virus.
