There were reports of two more persons undergoing treatment for Swine Flu at a private hospital. The situation is not alarming and the new cases can be attributed to the recent Pushkaralu where there was mass gathering, a senior doctor said. Gandhi Hospital is geared up to combat the epidemic this season going by the last season's experience. An awareness programme on the preparedness to tackle this epidemic was conducted yesterday, Dr Narasimulu, Nodal Officer at Gandhi Hospital said.
