In the last 24 hours Eight more persons succumbed to swine flu in different parts of Rajasthan, taking the toll due to the H1N1 virus in the state to 191 this year, an official of Medical and Health Directorate (MHD) said on Wednesday.

“Total deaths have touched 191 while positive cases in a day has risen by 346 to touch a figure of 3,648 across the state,” a medical and health department official toldĀ IANS.

Meanwhile, Rajasthan Medical and Health Minister Rajendra Singh Rathore again appealed to the public to seek doctor’s advice as soon as the symptoms of the disease are witnessed.

Rathore said that so far screening of 46 lakh persons have been conducted and the state government has so far distributed 15 lakh Tamiflu tablets across the state.

Congress’ state president Sachin Pilot, while flaying the state government on swine flu deaths, termed it “criminal neglect”. “What government has done so far is late. They should have launched an awareness campaign much earlier,” he said.

On the other side party spokesman Pratap Singh Khachariyawas said that the state government is contradicting its own instructions and directive on swine flu.
