By Super Admin

Srinagar, June 22 (ANI): The Government on Monday, dispelling concerns about the surge in swine flu cases in the country, said that it has adopted a "multi-pronged strategy" to curb the spread of swine flu virus and there was no reason to panic.

"It is because of multi-pronged strategy adopted by health ministry that the cases of swine flu remained almost negligible in India as compared to 275 other countries," Union Health Minister Ghulam Nabi Azad told media here in Jammu and Kashmir's Baderwah area.

Azad said that there was "no need to worry about the influenza as it is fully curable" and enough medicines are available in the country.

"Keeping in view the size and population of the country, the cases reported so far are almost negligible," he said.

As per Health Ministry officials in the national capita, a total of 59 people have tested positive for swine flu across the country, of which 32 patients have been discharged.

He said that the ministry continues to monitor the flu cases, which came from foreign countries. (ANI)
