AUM. Bharat has not yet woken up to the dangers of swineflu. A few cases of the disease cannot be termed as pandemic. Red Alert against the deadly disease is not yet sounded in minds of men. It may be there in the files of the health ministry. So even doctors are not prepared. Off and on press statements are issued cautioning people about swineflu. Advice to wash hands with soap and water is frequently given. Fine, but it is a drop in the ocean.
Should there be a pandemic, we in India do not have anti-swineflu medicines or injections. reasearch has yet to produce an antidote to the deadly disease ,swineflu.
"RAM BHAROSE" is the panacea of all ills in the minds of kings,captains and commoners alike. The Man Mohan Singh government is no exception to this all pervading philosophy of life that has been holding sway for centuries in our land and beyond.

No, not at all coz there is only two hospital in India .Government stated that we have many helpline no. of the hospitals treating this flu ......But the fact is that no. is only of I.G.I airport and rammanohar lohiya hospital ...........if you call I.G.I. airport they will give you RML hospitals no. ......... thus it means out of many hospital's helpline no. there is only one hospital in north India i.e. RML and another one is onn Pune .........it's very shocking that India has only two hospital to cure this deadly disease...................and about vaccines I don't no that India is having or not ......... it's also very doubtful
