The Swine flu toll in the city rose to 92 after a six month pregnant woman succumbed to the H1N1 infection in a hospital here, health officials said today.
The woman died last night.
According to Dr Ashok Mehta, Joint Director, health, ten more fresh cases were detected in the city during the last 24 hours and the number of critical patients stood at 21 out of whom eight needed ventilator support.
Various hospitals in the city admitted 33 new H1N1 infected patients during this period, he said.
Meanwhile, the organisers of the winter Savai Gandharva music festival, a much awaited annual event held here attracting a galaxy of vocalists and lovers of classical music, have postponed the fixture indefinitely in view of the Swine flu spread caused by overcrowding in public places.
