ISLAMABAD - Ten people have died of swine flu in Pakistan but the health ministry has failed to devise any effective strategy to stop the spread of the viral disease, officials said.
Till date, 63 people have been affected by the disease. The National Programme for Influenza failed to create awareness about swine flu among people, the Online news agency said Sunday quoting unnamed sources in the ministry.
Government officials ignored swine flu by terming it the disease of non-Muslims, but it reached Pakistan, they said. According to officials 10 people, including seven women, died of swine flu in the country.
