TV Channels not to Create Panic about H1N1 Influenza

Information and broadcasting ministry officials have cautioned TV channels not to create panic about the H1N1 influenza that is rapidly spreading across India. "We have conveyed our concerns to leading media organisations, including TV channels. We have no issue with creating awareness, but we have told them not to create panic about swine flu," an official of the information and broadcasting ministry said , Times of India reports.

Meanwhile, a nine-month-old child and a woman died of the H1N1 virus in India's epidemic epicentre Pune and a woman school teacher was Bangalore's first swine flu victim, officials said on Thursday, as India's toll climbed to 20 amid hectic efforts to curb the spread of the contagious virus ,Economic Times reports.

However, some people are approaching the designated nodal centre with recommendations from ministers and legislators but doctors are in no mood to obey, saying they will conduct tests only on suspected cases coming from abroad or Pune, which has so far reported 12 of the 19 H1N1 deaths in the country , Sify reports.
