“The patient died of extensive pneumonia on Tuesday night at Gandhi hospital.

Incidentally it was a swine flu positive case too,” said Dr Subhakar, AP state coordinator for swine flu.

With the death of the 32-year-old woman on Tuesday night, the total number of fatalities due to swine flu in the state has gone up to six.

“The total number of recorded cases as of date is 61 and the number of deaths is six,” the doctor said.

The doctors have reportedly been requesting the media not to disclose the details of the patient as it could create panic.
