Swine flu is constantly claiming lives everywhere. Till now 500 patients have been found positive with swine flu and 35 lives have been claimed by this deadly flu.
The health department has just discovered some shocking facts as per which they have come to a conclusion that bodies of victims should be kept wrapped up in polythene when the final rites are being observed. The points discovered by the medical department have revealed shocking reasons behind spreading of swine flu.
The department discovered that deaths are being caused by the infection which is spreading at an alarming rate. This is mainly because when the body of deceased family member is handed over to the family for the final rites, it is wrapped up in polythene. But the family takes off the packing for performing rituals of bathing the body and dressing up for the final journey. While performing all these rituals, each person comes close to the infected body, hence catching the infection. The department has constantly warned people not to take off the polythene, but now the reasons need to be made clearer. Keeping the body wrapped in polythene even while performing rituals is the only way to stay uninfected. Bacteria spread when the polythene is taken off and the purpose is defeated.
Recently a 17 year old girl from Kankroli lost her life to swine flu. This is the 7th life claimed by swine flu in the last 3 days. 3 more people have been found positive with swine flu.
Dr. Ramesh Joshi pointed out that the department is getting reports about people approaching swine flu department for Tamiflu tablets after performing final rites of their family members by taking off the polythene. This can prove to be fatal when the department is trying to control the spreading of bacteria. Hence people need to be made aware that polythene is not to be removed under any circumstances even while performing the final rites of victims.
