Death of three more swine flu patients was reported from H1N1 virus in Indore on Tuesday.
Of them, two were admitted to Bombay Hospital, while one was undergoing treatment at SAIIMS for more than a week.
The deceased included a 22-year-old woman from Khandwa and two men aged 55 and 50 from Indore. There were also reports of four patients admitted to various hospitals.
Dr Sharad Pandit, joint director, health, said that a drop in the number of swine flu cases could be observed because of the rise in temperatures.
"The fear of virus spread was felt when the weather had turned cold and humid. But the increase in mercury during the day time has resulted into a downfall again," said Pandit.
While a downfall is being observed in the total number of cases, a special programme titled 'Swasth Samwad' has been started. "The aim of the programme is to create awareness about the flu," said Pravir Krishn, principal secretary, health.
