Swine Flu Control room and helpline in Pune

A control room and helpline will be set up in the city in view of increasing cases of Swine Flu, particularly among school children, according to Maharashtra Education Minister Radhakrishna Patil.

Patil, who visited the schools which have been shut down due to spread of H1N1 virus, said there was a need to create greater awareness among parents and people as closing down schools cannot be the solution to the problem.

Meanwhile, one more school in the city reported a case of Swine Flu with a girl student catching the virus, taking the number of schools affected to four.

Three schools have already closed temporarily as a precautionary measure. The total number of confirmed Swine Flu cases so far was put at 41 out which 29 accounted for school children.
