Patna, Aug. 29 (ANI): Students of a biotechnology college in Bihar formed a human chain on Saturday (August 29) to create awareness about H1N1 influenza virus, commonly known as swine flu.
Students carried placards giving information pertaining to precautions and cure of the disease.
"Common people should know what's swine flu and what are the precautions and cure that we can take so that we can't have this type of disease. And also the people who are suffering from this disease swine flu, we are also making an awareness camp for that type of persons so that they can know how they can get the permanent cure for the swine flu," said Anjali Sharma, a participant in the human chain.
Even though no causalities have taken place in Bihar due to swine flu but two positive cases have been reported in the state.
Fear of the swine flu has gripped various parts of the country.
India recorded its first H1N1 case in the southern city of Hyderabad in May and since then the virus has spread across the country.
The H1N1 virus, commonly known as swine flu, emerged in April in the United States and Mexico, and has spread internationally.
The World Health Organisation (WHO) has termed H1N1 swine flu as unstoppable because many countries are not keeping a track and precise count of the virus cases. (ANI)
