Forty people were admitted to Andhra Pradesh Chest Hospital here with suspected symptoms of swine flu.
Hospital Superintendant Dr SV Prasad said at least 100 patients had come seeking test for swine flu. However, only 40 of them were admitted after they showed symptoms of H1N1.
There are two previously confirmed cases under treatment in the hospital now. Test report on the fresh admissions are expected later tonight.
Since the hospital is unable to cope with the situation, it sent six patients to Kondapur and one to Vansthalipuram centre here, he added.
