Two persons including a one-year-old girl, suspected to be suffering from H1N1 (swine flu) virus, have died in Indore in the last 24 hours.

The girl's condition turned critical on Thursday during treatment at a private hospital. She was rushed to swine flu ward of Maharaja Yeshwantrao Hospital (MYH) where doctors pronounced her dead, said Dr Sanjay Dixit, in-charge dean of the government-run Mahatma Gandhi Memorial Medical College.

Her symptoms were similar to that of swine flu, he said, adding that the girl's sample couldn't be taken. A 35-year-old woman with suspected swine flu symptoms died on Wednesday. In her case too the sample could not be collected in time, he said.

In Bhopal, a fresh case of swine flu was reported on Thursday. The patient was undergoing treatment at a private nursing home. A total of five swab samples were sent to Regional Medical Research Centre for Tribal (RMRCT), Jabalpur, from Bhopal on Wednesday and one was found to be positive.
