Swine flu panic grips Indian city


Panic-stricken people have queued up at hospitals in the western Indian city of Pune to be tested for swine flu.

More than 1,000 people have gathered outside the two government hospitals designated to look after swine flu cases in the city.

Chemist shops are reporting a shortage of face masks.

Pune reported India’s first swine flu death earlier this week – a 14-year-old school girl tested positive for the H1N1 virus and died in hospital.
