A nine-month-old girl succumbed to swine flu related complications at Kasturba Gandhi Hospital on Saturday.
This is the seventh swine flu death in Mumbai and its peripheral regions this month. The girl, a resident of Nalasopara, had been brought to the hospital on June 19. The doctors had administered her Tamiflu.
But the girl died before the Tamiflu course could be completed. Civic officials claimed that there was a delay in getting the girl admitted to the hospital. Last week, three women succumbed to swine-flu related complications at various private hospitals.
Earlier, the BMC had asked KEM, Nair and Sion hospitals to restart the swine flu screening and isolation facilities.
