Kolkata, Apr 30 (IBNS): Two days after a four-year-old child died due to swine flu in a Kolkata hospital, officials on Sunday confirmed one more death of a young housewife due to swine flu at a privately-run hospital in the city.

Seema Ghosh, a nearly 28-year-old woman from Kalyani in West Bengal's Nadia district, had fallen sick on Apr 16 and died of swine flue at AMRI hospital in Kolkata's Salt Lake area on Saturday night.

Earlier on Friday (Apr 28), Suhana Ghosh, a minor from the same district, was declared dead due to H1N1 influenza at Mukundapur AMRI hospital.

Doctors said that both were tested positive for swine flue (H1N1 virus).

"Swine flue has claimed two lives so far- a woman on Saturday night and a four-year-old on Friday. They were from Nadia district's Kalyani and Taherpur areas respectively," Tapas Roy, Chief Medical Officer of Health of Nadia district, told IBNS.

However, local Kalyani Municipality has started to drive out pigs from the area and also taken several initiatives to prevent and arrest the spread of H1N1 virus, an official said.
