Two more cases of H1N1 virus, a boy and a girl, have been detected in Pune taking the total of the Swine flu affected persons to 11.

The fresh cases were being treated with WHO prescribed medicines at the quarantined ward of the civic Naidu hospital, official sources said on Thursday.

The two teenagers were believed to have contracted the virus through a 16-year-old boy who returned to Pune from the US after a youth cultural exchange programme on July 8, hospital source said.

Meanwhile, civic health authorities have appealed to the people not to panic over increasing number of Swine flu cases as effective treatment was available to cure the infected.
