Health department takes own sweet time to awareness start drive

Health Depratment Of Lucknow

Lucknow: Despite 5 cases reported as positive out of 11, the health department of Lucknow failed to contain the infection of Swine Flu because of its laxity in spreading awareness about it and not following private medical facilities in the suspected cases. As per sources, the first case was reported in January and the first swine flu was reported in the city on the 28th of February but it was only in May that the awareness campaign started. As per standard operating procedure, the awareness should have started the moment the first case was reported. Even the private hospitals , nursing homes and pathology centers didn’t report positive cases despite the health department asking it to report all the suspected cases of Swine Flu and Dengue in march
