Srinagar, Sep 29: Doctors Association Kashmir (DAK) today pitched for setting up of separate flu clinics in hospitals which will help in control and prevention of spread of H1N1 infection.
Using the southern hemisphere flu season as our basis, this flu season could be worse for us.
Despite H1N1 outbreak alarm and flu season round the corner health authorities seem to be in deep slumber and there is no readiness to combat possible outbreak.
Health authorities are clueless about the flu activity and pattern of disease as valley lacks in H1N1 testing facility.
There are no logistics stockpiled and no awareness programmes among general masses which are vital for prevention of disease.
