Three suspected cases of swine flu in Assam have tested negative, Chief Minister Tarun Gogoi said in Guwahati on Monday.

The three were admitted to Mahendra Mohan Choudhury Hospital in Guwahati after they developed swine-flu like symptoms, he told reporters.

Isolation wards have been set up in all the three medical college hospitals in the state, Gogoi said, adding that there was adequate stock of Tamilflu available with the health department in case of an outbreak of the disease.

"Directives have been issued for screening of passengers coming from the affected states and abroad," he said. The government will train 100 doctors to deal with the disease, Gogoi said.
