HYDERABAD: Two Swine Flu patients on Monday left a private hospital where they were undergoing treatment, while the condition of a 63-year-old woman admitted to another private hospital turned critical.
Condition of a 53-year-old man, who left the hospital against medical advice, was critical. He remained untraceable despite efforts of the Hyderabad district surveillance team. The patient, who hails from Ranga Reddy district, was put on a ventilator on Sunday. He was one among the six patients who tested positive for the H1N1 virus on Saturday. A senior health official from Ranga Reddy refused to divulge any further information.
Another patient, a 54-year-old woman, also left the hospital on Monday. However, the surveillance team traced her. Member of the surveillance team Dr Rukma Reddy said the woman has shifted to Apollo Hospital, Jubilee Hills. Her condition is stable, she said.
Meanwhile, condition of 63-year-old woman turned very critical. She was put on a ventilator. A 17-month-old baby boy and a 25-year-old pregnant woman, who were admitted to Gandhi Hospital, are stable.
Dr Rukma confirmed that none of the close contacts of the two patients admitted at Gandhi Hospital had shown symptoms of Swine Flu.
Surveillance teams keep track of the patients and their close contacts to curb spread of the infection.
