After Swine flu creating havoc and rapidly spreading to many districts in Uttar Pradesh (UP), the State government is taking a serious view of the growing cases of Swine flu.

On May 16, the State Government gave an undertaking before the Lucknow bench of the Allahabad High Court that three new labs to test Swine flu and other diseases will be opened in the state very soon.

According to information provided by health authorities, the worst hit district is the state capital Lucknow, with more than 505 cases of H1N1 in the past few weeks. In lieu of the same, the Allahabad High Court has directed the State government to procure three lakh masks and a similar number of 'Tamiflu' tablets. The court has also asked the Centre to help the State in making the procurement and also step up its efforts to deal with the spread of the deadly H1N1 viral infection.

In an affidavit through Director General of Medical Health V.N. Tripathi, it apprised the court about steps being taken to combat swine flu.

Additional Advocate General Bulbul Godiya said that Viral Diagnostic Labs will be operational in September for five kinds of viral diseases - Flu, Dengue, Encephalitis, Chikangunya and Hepatitis.

Further, the affidavit also states that post of additional professors will also be created at these places. "These labs will have a capacity of 50-100 tests per day," said the high-ranking law official while adding that an MoU has already been signed for Saifai, Kanpur and Lucknow medical colleges.
