Epidemiologist Dr Sailesh said the patient had tested negative, while senior medical officer Dr Anil Mahindra said that since the woman was never admitted to any of the health centres of the district, they could not confirm or deny reports. However, both admitted that woman's close kin had been administered medicine following reports that she was being treated in Ludhiana for swine flu.
