2 fresh cases take H1N1 tally to 318

Mumbai: The count of H1N1 positive cases in the city climbed to 318 after two more people tested positive on Sunday. Around 103 people tested positive for the viral infection last month as opposed to 151 cases that were reported in the month of July. 

    On Sunday, a 35-year-old woman from Goregaon tested positive for the virus and was treated on an OPD basis. Another person to test positive was a 55-year-old man from Antop Hill, who had to be admitted to a private hospital. BMC's chief of epidemiology cell Dr Mangala Gomare said that his condition was stable. 
    The virus has been showing sings of relenting in the city but the count of positive cases is still going up in other parts of the state. 

    So far, 746 people across the state have tested positive for the virus since April. H1N1 has also claimed 42 lives in the last five months, including two in the city. 
    "The fresh showers may mean a slight spurt in cases as monsoon provides a conducive atmosphere for the virus to thrive. People with underlying ailments need to be watchful," said an expert.
