Seven new cases were diagnosed positive for swine flu in the city, taking the total number of people affected by the H1N1 virus to 61.

With monsoon now set in, experts fear the number of cases of swine flu may increase.

A senior health official said, "Now, with monsoon, the cases are expected to rise. The virus may not create as much havoc as it did last year as people have developed some immunity to it."

He cautioned, "High risk patients, especially pregnant women and critically ill patients should be extra careful."
