“Swine flu is now a part of the seasonal flu virus and if treatment is sought on time, then there may be no snag. Family members must wear a mask when they are close to the patient and wash their hands frequently. These tips will help to control the spread of the virus.” Said a senior chest physician Dr K Subhakar.
