With two more swine flu patients dying overnight, four people have so far been killed by the infection in Kashmir.
The standard protocol for treating a swine flu patient is to ensure isolation of the patient preferably at home.
The patients have been given medicines and instructions especially about remaining away from social and religious functions so that the virus does not spread in the society.
“Family members of the patients have also been advised to adhere to strict compliance of instructions while helping the patients fight the infection.”
The senior doctor who is renowned for treating pulmonary diseases said the hospital has an isolation ward for treating such patients where ten of them suffering from swine flu infection are presently being treated.
