Jalandhar, June 21(ANI): Six students, who had tested positive for the H1N1 virus, have been discharged from hospital here in Jalandhar on Sunday, after they showed complete recovery from the vicious disease.
On June 16, nine students, who had returned from United States, were quarantined in Jalandhar following suspected swine flu symptoms. Later, seven of the nine were confirmed positive for the swine flu.
"Initially I thought that it's going to be a serious infection but not now it is cured and I don't feel that it's such a big disease which cannot be cured. There is nothing to be afraid of," said Guriqbal Singh, one of the students discharged from the hospital."We are feeling very happy and are grateful to the team of doctors here as they have cured all the children. We are so happy that we can't express it in words," said Maninder Singh, father of Guriqbal Singh.
